Yup; pretty much sums up the advantages of the DA Limited series for AF. The 77 has a long focus throw for MF lovers - the 70 has quicker AF and QS.

On several occasions, I have seen the FA77 unable to AF in low-light, but, the DA70 succeeded after struggling. It seems (it sounds!) that the low throw of the FA77 is an handicap for AF.
I have no experience with the Sigma.
