Sigma 30mm 2.8 sel lens or?

I am looking at getting a new lens possibly the Sigma 30mm 2.8 (£150ish)as its supposed to be very good on a budget.  Anyways my dilema,  autofocus aside on this lens would I be better with an old manaul lens and perhaps a focal reducer (£70 ish) to acheive that 50mm ish focal range (and better light gathering capabilities) ?  Or is the sigma image quality really that much better than the old legacy lenses out their?

I am finding that I use the 50mm equivilent range more than any other and rarely use autofocus.

I do have a 28mm industar 69 and as much as I like this lens it has its limitations.
