Pros: Superb build quality; super-fast focus speed; reasonably priced for what you get.
Cons:
Could seriously benefit from rear drop-in filter capacity

I've used this for a little over two weeks on my D2h and can find no serious drawbacks. Outstanding image quality regardless of what others might have experienced. I've found no indication of back focus problems with the D2h. Color and contrast with this lens are excellent and the range (especially on the D2h) is outstanding -- equal to a 450mm f2.8 for less than two-grand! Neither focusing nor image quality suffers with the addition of the 2x converter.

I do wish Sigma had given this great lens rear filter capacity. Finding and buying 105mm front filters is next to impossible. Beyond that I can find no complaints with this piece of equipment.
