First lens: XF 35mm f2 or Sigma 30mm?

Hi everyone! I just bought my first Fuji, the X-T5. I’m coming from the Canon M-series. I had the Sigma 16mm and 56mm for the Canon mount and loved them.

For a Fujifilm noob, which do you think is the better lens to buy, Fujifilm 35mm f2 or Sigma 30mm? I’m comparing these two because they’re similar and price and I’m constricted by price and cannot splurge more.

I can’t seem to find a lot of comparisons between the two. The Sigma is always compared to the 1.4 version of the Fuji.

My initial thoughts:

Fuji - smaller, better colors?, better construction (metal) and weather-sealing, aperture ring

Sigma - brighter/faster, cheaper (but not by much)

Any thoughts? What would you buy and use?
