Pre-purchase help - How to test the Sigma 30mm f/1.4?

Howdy,

I have read lots of threads and reviews about the Sigma 30mm f/1.4, and I know that lots of people like it provided you get a good copy, and this is where I need help.

I am going to a shop to try it before buying it, how shall I test it in the shop using only my camera (550D)? What focusing issues shall I look for? The only primes I have are 50mm f/1.8 (Canon & Zuiko) and the 60mm f/2.8 macro.

P.S. The shop I am buying it from does not have a return policy nor will I get it with warranty, so I am pretty much on my own once I pay the money.
