The Sigma is good!
The Zoom would be handy. The price for the 2nd hand is not bad if it is in a mint cond!

I can't comment on the Sigma zoom, but having used both the Canon primes, I can say that they are superb lenses. Optically they are excellent, and the AF is lightning fast since they are both ring-USM. Additionally, they are quite small and light and much easier to carry compared to an f/2.8 zoom.

Hi


Though I am a Nikon system user, I would recommend you choose one of the prime lenses

Personally i would go for the 85 1.8 if you do not like using flash and do it with available light, hand-held.

The zoom is versatile but the size will require you to use flash or else fuzzy pictures at slow shutter speeds.

Pick between the 85 or the 100.
