I wouldn't consider it a waste, but there are definitely other options. My favourite is the Sigma 30/1.4, which you can find used for under $300 and which gives excellent images from my experience.

A bit longer, of course, is the 35/1.8; I may be alone in this sentiment, but I found I didn't like mine that much, and sold it in favour of the Sigma.

Cheers
