Doesn't bother me one bit. I'm hoping you and I get lots of responses. I'm really on the fence about the Sigmas. I like the pictures I've seen and I think either one would make a good first prime for me. I just don't know if it's what I really need right now.

I'm learning so I'd like a fast prime so I can really experience using big apertures and playing with DOF. The nice thing about the Sigmas is the auto focus and not having to use an adapter. But I can get a very fast 1.4 Canon 50mm on ebay for $60 and the adapter for $25 but then I have to learn to use the Focus Peaking. No big deal, I've played with it a little and it's easy enough to use but you can't use it with anything that's moving.

No easy answers it seems. Thanks for hopping onboard the thread.
