    Thanks for fixing! it is a little bit obscure, but plenty of people use pentax's 40mm and 43mm lenses on aps-c which would give a similar field of view. I actually don't mind the focal length, fits kind of a wide-portrait (i.e. head and shoulders or head/background on one side) type of shot. I'm more interested in the 19mm, if it comes in at $199 street and $150 retail and is of reasonably good quality it could be an inexpensive 20mm alternative (gasp!).

    Sigma has it on their site and its nex and m43 lens only. I wish the 30/1.4 came in m43

    If i am not mistaken, it once was available in 4/3 mount, and if you can secure a used copy could use it on µ4/3 with adapter.

    The focusing is awful though, and it's not a small lens either. If you add in the price of an adapter, the Panasonic 25/1.4 is actually not much more expensive, and it's a lot more practical on m4/3.
