Other than that, I like it very much: light weight, nice bokeh, and quiet and fast AF.
Sigma sent it back to me today and it is as sharp as it can be. I am very happy now.
BUT... The first one front-focussed so badly that I could not use it on Auto Focus unless the aperture was small enough that the discrpancy didn't matter. Since I want to use this lens in low light on moving subjects this made it unusable for me. If my lovely new 60D had the micro-adjustment feature, that would probably have sorted the problem as the lens front-focussed all the way from 50mm to 150mm and the one adjustment might well have done the trick - good news for those with 50Ds and 7Ds.
Since I had bought it from Norman Camera (through Amazon), I could take it in and try another copy. They were extemely helpful - and patient - while I put 2 more copies through their paces at their Grand Rapids store and yet a third copy at their Kalamazoo store. All of the copies of this lens had exactly the same behavior. I couldn't see one that was any better than the others. It was almost as if they had been designed for another camera. And no, it isn't my camera, as none of my other lenses have this problem including my new Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L which would surely show it if it was there.
I know I could have returned the lens to Sigma and get them to adjust it to fit my camera but I decided instead to return it and see if I could learn to manage with a couple of primes instead.Read more ›

I really wanted this lens to be good because it looks pretty great on paper. Unfortunately when it arrived the autofocus didn't really work at all. Read morePublished on July 28, 2009 by Dallas Kashuba
