I am excited for sure for the sharpness boost...my biggest fear is the autofocus from the Sigma.  I have read a small handful of mixed reviews about this (not many)...knowing my luck, I'd get one of the problematic ones.

There is a huge difference in Sigma lenses in the last year or so.  Starting with the 85 f1.4 and current 120-300 f2.8 HSM OS through the new current line up releases they seem to have solved many of their focus issues as well as QC issues.

While not being OEM lenses, Sigma is certainly stepping up to put themselves to the front of the line on third party lenses and with the 35 f1.4 they have put themselves at the head of the pack for OEM or third party offerings.  That is pretty impressive at 1/2 to 1/3 less than the OEM offerings.
