The only thing I can think of is it's propensity to lens flair, which can be irritating if you don't pay attention to what you're shooting and it's fairly slow. 4.5-5.6 is sorta high in the aperture range.
This lens is just special. The distortion is totally acceptable unless you're using a FF camera like the 5D or 1Ds, but on a FOVCF or crop sensor camera, it's just perfect. I can't say enough about it, so I'm going to let a few of my photos taken with the Sigma do all the talking.

Color, incredible sharpness, quick AF, small and light on camera.
Hunts like hell in low light.
This was the very first lens I used when getting into the world of DSLR. At first I struggled with the lens and the crop factor on my 20D. But after using some other lenses and realizing what I had I realized I had a very special lens. It'll focus in close, almost macro close. It's light on the camera body and I almost always get great results with it. If I don't, it's usually my fault. I'd recommend this lens to ANYONE.
