Sigma f1.4 30mm, Sony f1.8 30mm, I cant see benefit to f1.4....

So Ive watched a ton of reviews, and I can see the occasional more intense blacks and contrast, but I also see more grain on the sigma even at lower ISO's.
The other downside is the Sony does not have barrel distortion, the Sigma does, which is ok if you arent uploading instantly as lightroom will fix it, but there are occasions when I want to share a jpg immediately via wifi to my phone.
And of course the Sigma is twice the length.
I kind of wanted a walk around lens that is approx 50mm in FF so size is somewhat a downer but I could handle it.
Is the Sony the better choice for me?
