Go with the Siggy 30 1.4 for $350 used on POTN or Fred Miranda. .[/QUOTE]
What about the Canon 28mm f/1.8 vs the siggy? They seem fairly close both in price and performance on an aps-c sensor. Best I can tell though from various online reviews, the siggys seem to have considerably more production quality issues. You're one of the lucky few if you get a good copy first or second try."Palin/Bachmann 2010 - It's a No-Brainer!"

Bump. I'm wondering about peoples experiences with the Siggy vs Canon lenses. Seems Siggy can be great if you get a good lens, but seems from various reviews that a good lens is hit or miss. Is that common?

reportedly way more problems with the siggy 50mm than with the 30mm.
My 30mm was the best lens I ever owned (though admittedly I have very limited experience)

I've always hear on Canon forums about the "Sigma lottery" regarding AF. The one Sigma lens that doesn't suffer from this complaint is the 85 f/1.4 (I rented it myself once and it is super sharp). I own the Sigma 15mm fisheye and no problems on that one.Gallery
Go that way, really fast...if something gets in your way, TURN!

I have my twin boys due any day now as well. I picked up the Nikon D7000 and a 70-300. I have a 18-70 but am not sure if I will need/want an additional lens. My brother is bringing his 50 1.8.
