1. Sigma is heavier, better constructed and has great quality down to 1.4 BUT there are way too many reports on focus problems. I simply can't affor to send the lens back for recalibration - I live outside of the US.

2. Canon is cheaper, and seems to be more consistent in quality. I could live with the vignetting at f/1.4

Well it was exactly due to the unreliable AF on my Canon 50/1.4 that I got rid of it.
