2) the slightly faster lens(F 1.2 vs F1.4 - I love shooting below F2)

Bear in mind that there is virtually NO practical difference between f/1.2 and f/1.4 on a digital sensor, so I wouldn't use the f-stop as a reason for choosing one over the other.

Have a read of this: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/an_open_letter_to_the_major_camera_manufacturers.shtml

Actually, this shows that there is, something like EV 0.2-0.25. Is that visible, or no - play with the exposure slider in LR to get an idea.

There have been reports here that the Sigma is visibly darker than the Canon - somebody mentioned 3/4 stops. I have measured about 0.3 difference when the Canon is at f/1.4 on RAWs posted by other people. What we do not know if the Canon bodies boost the ISO for the Sigma, as well.
