I know the lens smashes Nikon in price, but as I asked before, how's the build quality (sigma)?

On the surface, build quality looks excellent.

It doesn't have a 10 year recyclable symbol on the side - this is an all metal lens. The lens hood is plastic but sturdy and twists on with a reassuring click. Manual focus is quite good bordering on excellent in my view - not loose at all, perhaps slightly stiff but I'd rather that, and no play. I'm coming to this lens (and the D800) after years using *only* manual focus Zeiss lenses.

It looks good and inspires confidence.

Would I want to drop it? Nope.

10 year warranty for Canadian buyers, yay!

Ditto, especially the 10 yr warranty for Canadians!
