Re: Richard & Pentel, I assume all shots were without flash? I have posted a thread askng for suggestions for a good but not too expensive prime for indoors where flash is not allowed. Something in the 24-35mm range, as I have the 50 1.8. Thank's.

There are old pilots, & there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots.

right, my samples are without flash. i agree with the pts that IS is more useful than 1-stop faster for bokeh. The Sigma 1.4 is of course sharper. If you want the best IQ then maybe the 35 IS is not good for you. i took my first test shot in a room that had no light turned on, with only very dim light from outside in an early morning, it survived a shutter speed of 1/6 (i forgot the exact speed). i was just impressed.

i would say the new Canon IS primes are good choice for your situation. IS is useful for static objects in low lights.
