Hmmm I have some Fuji ISO1600 film in OM-Analogue and 50mm f1.4 on I'll see what is like with available light. I usually use it for dim lit rooms. It's not aggressive looking and the retro/small stylish look people warm to in a bar or restaurant rather than think wtf8( Silver and black way to go in the evening. May be grab a 35mm f2...Probably cost you less than £100 on fleabay...

Re: so it seems like I should focus on the 14-54mm, and skip out on the 30mm sigma

The biggest problem you will have with light is the photos in the churches.

I think photos at night will be tough. Just my two cents.

Evening shots outside in twilight will be difficult even with a 30mm f/1.4 lens. A small pocket tripod and ball head would be useful so the camera can be braced against the side of a building or something else at hand.
