At the end of the day they are both great lenses.
If your a landscape shooter get the 31.
If your a portrait/shallow DOF shooter get the 30.
Quite right. I personally have little to no desire for the FA 31, since I primarily use the Sigma 30 for portraits of my kids. Other than in landscapes, corner performance tends to be less important than other features of lenses.

Getting the Sigma allowed me to purchase the DFA 100mm macro, basically getting both lenses for the price of the FA 31.
