Well, at $1200 I thought I'd take a chance on the 150mm Sigma. It focuses faster than I'd expected, and yes, it's sharp. Fills my need for a longer lens. It's a bit heavier than I'd like, but I guess that it's hard to get good images without heavy glass

I haven't had a chance to try a 50 1.4G or 1.8G - I'd like to, and the 35mm f/1.4G, as well.

I wanted something shorter, so I settled for a 24-70 for the moment. Not a prime, but sometimes ya gotta compromise.

So I have 3 lenses for the weekend: the 24-70, the 85, and the 150. That covers my immediate needs. Now I spend the weekend trying them out
