Well I know it sounds silly, but that 3mm difference does make a...well, difference. I like the Sigma 30/2.8's FoV better than the E35's, so I'll probably like 32mm better as well. Also, we can reasonably expect better sharpness and microcontrast from the Zeiss, which will make it worth the extra money for some people.

I'd never drop that much on a 50mm equivalent, so it doesn't appeal to me, but I can definitely see the point of it. I really wish Sigma would make a 28-30mm f/1.4 lens, though!
