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!
