Yup...something else too...Sigma is still making the lenses in Japan when the "big boys" took their plants off-shore.  I've often wondered if because the plants have almost all left the country if Sigma took the opportunity to hire some free agent lens designer talent AND technician talent that was cut loose.  And not Sigma might have a far better staff than ever.
