I'm thinking about getting a Sigma as my next lens for my 5n. Would you all say for the price it's a better buy than the 50mm Sony lens?

If you've used both lens (Sigma 30mm or Sony 50mm) which do you prefer? I already have the kit lens and the 55-210.

They are both good but the Sigma is alot smaller and more versatile. The 50 is a 50 and therefore is a 75mm equivalent. Its just too tight for me to use on a regular basis. It does take nice shots though you just need the room to be able to maneuver far away enough from your subject. Also the Sigma 30 fits better in a jacket pocket if you are out and about. The Sony wins in quality and speed however. The Sigma in sharpenss.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll keep that in mind on my next purchase.  Is the 50mm about the same size as the 18-55mm?
