in a crop body, would a 28mm 1.8 be more practical than a 50mm 1.4?

One of the big minuses of crop bodies is that you don't have the equivalent of the 50mm.

Sigma tried to make it and created the 30mm f/1.4 which seems to be good but it's not exactly light nor cheap.

Nikon also released the 35mm f/1.8 with the same purpose.

Never had the canon 28mm f/1.8 but I used the zeiss 28mm distagon f/2.8 C/Y with adapter which I liked very much on crop.

Unfortunately, it seems the best lens upgrade to get the 50mm equiv is to buy a used 5D body. There's no other less expensive way.
