Exactly. I had hoped the 40mm would work for me but it was not to be. However, I have since discovered times when the 50mm isn't quite wide enough, most notably indoor shots in smaller rooms. So I'm starting to long for a 35mm; but a 35mm f1.4 is beyond my budget at the moment.

good points

I too am looking for a 35 when I can afford one.

my eyes are on the two new ones: the canon 35 f2 IS and the new sigma 35 f1.4

Have you two considered the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ? Most who have it love it! It is currently on sale at B&H for $140 off! Only $349 while the sale lasts!

I've looked at it in the past but was put-off by the mediocre image quality reported in the photozone review.  I have read actual users who do love it, as you say.  I think I'll look at it more closely.
