If you are wanting it for the performance wide open then the Sigma wins, when stopped down then it goes to the Canon.

For what it's worth I bought both and I much prefer the Sigma to the Canon. I will be using the lens at a wedding this coming Monday so I will definitely share some of the images as soon as I have them! Thanks

Well I got back from the wedding at 2am and have been at work all day, so I have had only a little time this evening to sort through and process the 400-odd RAW files.

As promised here is a sample from the wedding using the Sigma 50mm f/1.4; for comments & criticism I have posted a separate thread here.
