I would go w/ the sigma 30. More performance for the money imo.

I sold my lens collection, 50mm 1.4 ( hated it ) 70-200 ( loved it, but rarely used it ) and my 17-40 ( it was meh ) for money to help fund my move in a little bit and to create a bit of an emergency savings fund.


And i'm thinking about still keeping my DSLR, but maybe just buying 1 lens for it.

I was thinking of either going with a sigma 30mm ( good fast sharp prime ) or possibly keeping an eye out for a used 17-55 2.8.

What do you guys think?

both good options but only you can chose prime vs zoom. its personal preference

Its the sigma 30mm f1.4 right?

Personally I have no issues with prime lens and could shot all day long with it.
17-55mm is more variable through and f2.8 is very useful aswell.
In the end its indeed personal preference and depends on thr type of photography. I guess you want to use it for special events or moments so the 17-55mm might be the better choice.

Why did you hate the 50mm f1.4?

the AF was always slightly off, and I just was never really happy with using it.

Why would you keep you DSLR if you won't be shooting it?
Both the 30 1.4 DC and the 17-55 IS where great lenses for me, but the later is big and heavy (for a cropped body lens, sure, it is smaller/lighter than FF 2.8 standard zooms), so if you leave your DSLR home as it is big and heavy, the 17-55 won't help.

Didn't you have the EOS M at some point?

If you where to get rid your DSLR kit - why not go for a mirror-less cropped body altogether?

I still have my M, and the DSLR is much more user friendly when shooting certain things.

I could just jump to a mirrorless system, but Mainly I wanted to just downsize my gear a bit since I don't plan on doing paid work anymore.

I suppose I could just get a semi-decent mirrorless system, but the only one that really interest me is fuji, and its quite expensive.
