One thing to clear up is that you are asking for opinions about the black pieces. 1e4 e5 is not the Lopez... yet. Dragonfire said it best I think.
Black does not choose to play the Lopez yet black does choose to play the Sicillian. This is usually why people play the Sicillian, because they are deciding what type of game to play, not white. One thing I have noticed in the Sicillian is that the knights often play a large role in the attack and it is usually harder for whites bishops to be directly involved, instead, one is often fianchettoed. In a Kings Pawn game (1.e4 e5) the bishops have an easier time at becoming directly involved. So, it depends on your style of play. Personally I like 1.e4 e5 because of the intensity of piece conflict. I am actually starting to play 1.d4 in order to learn more strategic themes as to prepare me for playing the Sicillian in the future.
If you are comfortable with the open style of play where your bishops and knights become developed quickly, play 1.e4 e5. But if you are more comfortable with semi-open games where the pieces don't immediatley come into conflict as much
, then play 1.e4 c5.
If you like knights more then bishops, maybe 1...c5 could suit you better, because you will be avoiding the possiblity of losing a knight in the exchange variation of the Ruy Lopez. If you like bishops more the knights, then its hard to say which one to go with. I'd say 1.e4 e5 has a bit more bishop action right off the bat.
If anyone would like to correct anything I have said, please feel free to do so.
