That's a fantastic price for those 2 lenses. They have the same deal in m4/3 mount. I don't have really any need for the lenses, but at $199 it is tempting. I wonder if Sigma is about to release updated versions? The lenses haven't been out that long so I think it is unlikely. Maybe Sigma isn't selling a lot of them so is going to drop them?

I've been also fighting against the idea of buying this lenses -the only one that I find interesting is the 19mm, but I don't need it.
I don't believe Sigma will drop the E mount, I'm prone to think they will upgrade the lens, or bring new products more in the actual trend: F1.4 primes...

Yes, if they came out with a pancake 19mm f2 or 20mm f1.7 or something like that at a good price then it would be very popular, I think. The pancake Panasonic 20mm f1.7 shows the small size that is possible. I briefly considered the 19mm f2.8 because the FL was good for my purposes, but the f2.8 is a bit slow and the lens is large. I got the 20mm f1.7 instead which is smaller and faster.

I am hoping that Sigma and Tamron continue making lenses for mirrorless to give more choices and competition.
