Affordable (sub-$1k), fast (f/2 or faster), wide-angle (20-30mm) prime?

The EOS M's announcement with its 22mm kit prime made me yearn for a normal focal length prime on my camera. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I like the aperture of the Canon 28mm f/1.8, but reviews I've read online haven't been very promising. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 looks promising, but I'm always a bit wary about buying non-Canon lenses. Also, it's on the long end of what I'm looking for; the closer to 35mm equivalent focal length, the better.

Are there any other alternatives?
