I got this lens too. It's really superb for the price, and Tamron USD works suprisingly good. However it got two drawbacks:

it's a big lens for the class. You can have noticably smaller lenses with similar aperture range... but it's still smaller than f/2.8

And there's focusing ring... which rotates in opposite direction than in other A-mount lenses. That's seriously annoying and I missed several shots because of this, but well....

Still worth the money IMO It's better choice than similar Sigma lenses in terms of picture quality.
