Sigma 30mm f1.4 or 28mm f1.8 would be the best choices.  If $450-500 is too much, then Canon 35mm f2 or 28mm f2.8 as alternates.

40mm f2.8 is very sharp and 20% wider than the 50mm, but I would only suggest it in place of the 50, not as a complement.

If he is not getting the top 2 choices you suggested, I say he should not at all because he has a zoom giving him 2.8 in that range already.  Anything smaller than 1.8 is covering to close in aperture to what he already has.  Just my opinion.

Darkness is the monster and your shutter is your sword, aperture your shield and iso your armor. Strike fast with your sword and defend well with your shield and hope your armor holds up.
