Review Date: Aug 15, 2011 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Great optics
Cons:
Results are like a box of chocolates depending on where it opted to focus

Superb optics, and I wish Sigma had put a proper focusing ring on it and made it a manual focus lens competing with the Zeiss 50s. The autofocus was a disaster where at first it would completely misfocus on closer subjects and after a "repair" and "calibration" by Sigma completely misfocus on anything past 8-10 feet.

Stupid me bought another Sigma product later (since I did like the 15-30 and 50-500 I owned), a DP2, which now has dust on the sensor (cannot be cleaned) after a month.

Never again, Sigma.
