Re image stabilization: Tcav, that is interesting. I'm not sure then on that now. What I saw was an article in one of my photo mags I subscribe too. I 'think' it was popular photography but might have been in Outdoor photog.... not sure now. They said the opposite but who knows now lol

And as the guy said, each system has its advantages and disadvantages. Optical image stabilization make the lens bigger, heavier and more expensive, but it puts a stabilized image in the viewfinder. Sensor shift doesn't do that except for "Live View' dSLRs (of which there are ...lets see now ... 1!)

And I've had trouble finding the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 in the Alpha/Maxxum mount. I've often been tempted to go with their 28mm f/1.8 instead (half an f-stop for $150 doesn't sound bad.), but I never bit the bullet.
The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 in Maxxum/Dynax/Alpha mount is in stock at B&H (and it has been for a while):
