Old and new Sigmas just have different body, same optics. I love my 30mm Sigma, I prefer it over 35mm for the additional field of view. I'm using an NEX-7, I'm a pixel peeper, and I find the Sigma to be very sharp. I think it's a great idea to pick one up cheap, then later on if you really want another f/stop and/or OSS you can find a 35mm f/1.8 used.

I wouldn't get a legacy 35mm MF lens. The Sigma is going to be sharper, lighter, fully supported by your camera and by Lightroom lens profiles, and probably the same price.
