withdrawing the Sigma 24mm. Dave, thank you.
Glad to have saved you from something you'd regret.

The thing is, I'm not using it much. When I want to go wide, I want UWA and I usually reach for my Samyang 14mm, and I take a 28mm prime with me as a 'next' focal length lens. It simply makes sense, and the 28mm have less distortion. But the Sigma is perfect (especially combined with the DA 40mm) for parties and for low-light street photos. I've done very little events (two parties, a wedding, two baptisms--I used the Sigma 24mm only for the wedding) and I rarely shoot streets after sunset. However, my needs might change, and given the recent price increases and the (however distant) prospect of a Pentax FF, there's good reason to keep it.

Drats, I wish I would have noticed before you changed your mind.
Sorry, Brent--if I change my mind again, I'll let you know. I hesitate between keeping the Sigma and selling it to fund a Tamron 17-50mm... For the moment I think it's best not to let go of the Sigma.
