I just want to ask for those who own or have experience of the Sigma 30 f1.4 DC. I am torn which one to get. The other consideration is the sony 35 f1.8 OSS. I know both are good lenses, but the Sigma is about 2/3 stop faster, and is supposed to be slightly sharper than the sony.

So, what is your opinion of the Sigma lens? Anything I should know in other areas of performance like AF speed, AF accuracy, etc.?

I love the Sigma, but the AF leaves quite a bit to be desired when compared to native Sony lenses. The Sigma is absolutely beautiful and probably the sharpest APSC lens. Also one of fastest with the 1.4 aperture. 
But i'd say if you do a lot of continuous shooting, or try to shoot actions, movement,'s not ideal.
It doesn't do PDAF on the outer edges of the frame like native Sony stuff.
