I like to shoot indoors quite a bit, and sometimes outdoors after dusk. Depending on the type of shot and DoF I'm looking for, I do shoot below 3.5-4.5, which is where most consumer and prosumer zooms start. The Canon 70-300mm IS might not be a bad lens for me but that's still in the $500 range. Last time I spent that much money on one lens, it was the f/4L that I just sold.

I've considered the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM, but as long as I'm using the 17-55/2.8 with a crop sensor, I'm thinking that the Sigma DC 30mm f/1.4 EX HSM or the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM would provide a handier focal length.
If you shoot Canon, forget this Sigma and get the superior Canon 28mm f/1.8 EF for less money.
