I owned the Sigma 30mm f1.4 which actually has the picture angle of a 34mm lens. It is as sharp as any Nikon prime I have owned and sharper than my 50mm f1.4 lens. Very fast and accurate autofocus.

Another lens I would want for a DX outfit is the Nikon 58mm f1.4 lens that provides an equivalent picture angle and perspective to the that of the 85mm on a FX camera. I disliked using the 85mm on my DX cameras as it was too long for general use indoors where it had the picture angle of a 135mm on a FX camera. It needed too great a working distance.
