like a 30mm on a crop camera)."

I thank God every day that I don't know what a 50mm did on a film camera. I have the Sigma 30 and the Nikon 50 1.8 and use both. All I know or want to know about either is what I see through the viewfinder and the resulting picture. Don't care what they did on 35mm film.

I do tend to use the 30 more but more for the low light than the field of view. I tend more to not include everything my eye can see in the pictures I take.
