Rokinon 35f1.4 versus Sigma 30f1.4

These two lenses are roughly the same price.  Here's what I've gathered from reading various reviews:

Rokinon:

  • Extremely Sharp and overall excellent IQ
  • Manual Focus
  • FF or APS

Sigma:

  • OK Image quality (but users seem happier with it than reviewers)
  • Auto Focus
  • APS only

I'm currently using a Canon 550 body.  Will likely go to FF several years from now.

Which would you purchase?
