Sigma doesn't have access to Pentax's exclusive pixie dust mines.

If I win the FA 31 this giveaway and the Sigma 18-35 the next giveaway, I will be able to answer your question.

I'm the wrong guy to ask, as I only own primes.

I don't own either, but I'll buy you a Sigma 18-35 if you'll buy me a FA31.

Bulky fast zoom vs. compact fast prime. Prime every time. Primetime.

FA31 f1.8 is the one

The 31 f1.8 is the obvious choice - especially given the focusing issues with the Sigma.
