Re: Fast prime for indoors. Suggestions please.

I was thinking seriously about a Sigma 30 1.4, and might get one some time, but ended up getting a Tamron 17-50 non-VC for this sort of thing. It works fine open to 2.8 and allows me to get the ISO down those couple of stops. 17 is wide enough for the tighter areas and it gives me a lot of focal lengths to work with.

I paid about AU$350 for that on special.
