I'll second that vote for the Sigma 24-105 ART lens!!! For low light I bypass f2.8 completely. I use a Tamron 45mm f1.8, another great lens even sharper than the Sigma.

Probably about the same as the Sigma 50 1.4, but lighter and less expensive. Both are very fine choices. I just wish we could get the Sigma Art 12-24 or the 20mm prime. 24mm just isn't wide enough for a lot of shots of scenery and architecture.

While wider than 24mm might be nice to have I've never felt that it wasn't wide enough. Admittedly I've never shot with anything wider. I considered the Tamron 15-30 f2.8 but quite frankly I don't think I would use it enough to justify the cost.
