Get a 50mm f1.8? :)

I think there's a Tokina or Tamron lens that has f2.8, but not sure about the price though... hmmm..

I don't think there's a zoom lens with an aperture of f2.8 or lower....

But anyway, I think you are headed in the right direction with the Sigma EX series as a budget option for good optics.

3)Nikon 80-200 two touch IF-ED is ard $800 second hand...great results for a good price....the ext focusing one ard $700.....
