I'm looking for a good prime for a D300. I'm looking in the 30 - 35 mm range and want something fast (f/2 or better). I'm finding

Nikkor 35mm f/2d
Sigma 30mm f/1.4
Sigma 20mm f/1/8 (I know, a bit wider than I'm wanting, but it would be nice:-)

Thoughts / opinions? I'm leaning toward the Sigma as it's a bit brighter, but am concerned about ca and iq from it (though the d300 fixes ca pretty well:-)

I want this for natural light shooting indoors and out. I prefer very sharp lenses that I can tone down later if needed.

I use the Nikkor 35mm f/2 on my D300. I love it! It's a very versatile lens: Sharp, good IQ, useful in low light, close focusing, small, light and won't break the bank. It gets my vote but then the Sigma is also very nice. :-)
