I have both and they are very good.

In good light, the Sigma beats the 50mm 1.8.

In low light, the 50mm 1.8 beats the Sigma just because of it's speed.

My 50mm 1.8 focuses slower than the Sigma, and occasionally misses focus altogether, when wide open. This doesn't happen with the Sigma.

Optically, I would say that the Sigma is better, but not by a mile.

If you're not afraid of raising the ISO a bit - and you shouldn't be, the Sigma is fine under normal domestic lighting.

ymmv.
