(Newest Revision) Sharp, when it focuses correctly

I'm going to start with build quality.

The build on this lens is very good. It's pretty heavy, but it's not terrible by any means. I love the tripod mount design and I have it on the lens during most times.

In terms of sharpest, this lens is very sharp. It's not super contrasty, but I can change that in Lightroom

The focus is fairly fast, but not always accurate... I took shots of birds with this. I had a great shot where the bird was looking directly at me. I check the photo, and the focus is nowhere. It's not focused on anything. When it is focused, the lens is very sharp.

8/10 lens. Only complaint is the focus. And for some, the weight.

Sigma 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC APO OS HSM
Telephoto zoom lens • Canon EF-S, Nikon F (DX), Sigma SA Bayonet
