EXDN is the recently discontinued model with the plastic body.  Sigma says the new DN model (with metal body) has identical optics.  I have the EX DN.  Shot at f/5.6 or f/8 it's a very sharp contrasty landscape lens with wonderful color rendition.  The plastic-bodied version is available very inexpensively right now.

I use the 1/2.8 Sigma, it is very fine, for all intents and purposes as good as the 30.

I never use my 16/2.8; even with distortion correction, it still yields soft edge results at most apertures.
