50mm = 75mm = f1.8 = $100 more for OSS and 1.3 stops faster

Pick your poison. They are more alike than different. I believe the shorter lens is more useful. I would make the decision based on which focal length works best for you.

The choice comes down to you.

Agreed. What amuses me is that this thread between two lenses that are both very good and not super expensive brings out passion.

People seem to need to think their lens is absolutely best, when actually they compete well enough that the Sony will be best for some and the Sigma best for others.

Is it the closeness of the competition that heightens the interest?
