I'll be getting one in a week or so! At first I was thinking of going for a Nikon 24mm 1.4, but I think the Sigma is the right choice for now.

I'll play - 3 from my favorite model - the first two with really ugly distracting backgrounds - but hey, f1.4.....what background Even at f2.8 on the 2nd, the background is gone.

You are gonna love this lens I guarantee.

I didn't know that this lens was that good. The colors and bokeh on the kid with the red sweatshirt are really good.

guys how much success do you have while focusing? any inconsitency? what hints do you have about focusing? do you have any problem with contrast?

answers for me:

%70 spot on focus, i use "single point" focus and i never do focus and recompose, sometimes contrast is very low, one more thing never take a photo of someone in front of a yellowish wall, this lens have a yellowish color cast

I'm probably around 50-60% "spot on focus" with apertures 2.8 and wider, where as if I had used a smaller aperture, I'd be closer to 80% spot on.

I use AF-C, single point, obviously no re-compose with that. I've found recomposing with this lens makes it REALLY hard to keep focus especially when you are shooting 2.8 or wider. I use AF-C to force myself to not recompose when I use this lens.

No major contrast issues here as long as the light is good. But when the light is bad, this lens won't do you any favors.

The Bokeh is SOOC. The colors... well let's just say I juiced them up a bit in PS. Still, colors/contrast are nice and vivid with this lens.

These are from Sigma on D90: http://jtra.cz/foto/20110624-divci-hrady/

Bokeh is great at close distance, but I don't like it at more than about 6m.






See http://jtra.cz/stuff/essays/bokeh/ for more on bokeh.

One of my shots was focus recomposed. All the others shot in AFC 9point. I have noticed on my D7000 the severe outer focus points (last in the viewfinder around the edges) give it sharpness issues. However the majority of the others are sharp. I will say it takes some getting used to shooting this lens compared to a few other primes, but once I kind of figured out how it acted in the D7000 I was set. I just choose whichever method works for the subject I am shooting. No issues in low light on my camera what so ever. In fact it behaves really well on the D7000 in low light and has saved my rear many of times. As Ben mentioned the colors/contrast are really nice. Minimal boots to mine in PP.
