Sony 35mm f1.8 E or Sigma 30mm f1.4 for A6400

Looking for some advice on choosing between these 2 primes. I'd like to purchase 1 of these primes and the 18-135mm zoom, at some stage, for the A6400.

Usage and lens requirement

  • I'd be using the prime for primarily photos and occasional videos of my fast moving kids, general and travel photography.
  • Lens has to be fast focusing and take sharp great quality photos and video
  • I'd like a lens that you can still see a fair portion of the scene, ie. not too tight a focal length
  • Price is not a factor as both of these lenses cost about the same.
  • I may be getting a Zhiyun Crane-M2 to do some occasional video work of my kids

So, is the faster lens/image quality/wider FL of the Sigma 30mm that much better to sacrifice the OSS and smaller footprint of the Sony 35mm?
