Dropped my a6000 and damaged the 16-50 kit lens

I think the kit lens is done. Put a dent in the focus ring, and now the camera doesn't recognize the lens. Camera works fine with the 55-210.

My question: should I just get another kit lens, or get the Sigma 30mm f1.4. Maybe it's a personal choice, but I would like to hear what others have to say. I have been drooling over the Sigma for a while anyway.

I've seen a thread on taking the lens apart and attempting to repair it; if I'm sure it's toast I might try that but the photo on that thread made it appear that the focus ring wasn't accessible by taking out the 4 screws in back.
