Re: E520 - stick, wait or upgrade now?

The Oly 45/1.8 is lighter and smaller than the Sigma 60/2.8, but NOT cheaper (as you state above). Oly 45 ~175 new; Sigma 60 ~120 new. And neither is a big lens. The Sigma actually feels more solid, and has less plastic (with a smooth metal barrel ... which you may not like so much).

I WOULDN'T go for the 12-60 4/3 version until you've tried a m4/3 body - borrow one, or rent one from here ?
