Looking forward to see pictures, mate ! I'm also in the ballpark of a low-light lense at the moment ! :)

Well here's the story: evrything was sitting at desk waiting for me to pay, and when I tried to get finance from Jessops both me and my wife were declined (for whatever silly reason) so they did a good job of losing my custom - I was lined up to spend 979!

After much MUCH deliberation I have bought a Canon 50D online which will be delivered tomorrow, and I'm in the process of getting a preowned Sigma 28mm f/1.8 to save some for better glass in the future! :D

I also have this same setup. I love my 35mm f1.8! I put down the 50mm f1.8. The 35 is faster focusing and gives a really sharp picture. It is my second favorite lens right next to my sigma 70 - 200mm f2.8.

You're going to love this setup.
