How can this be legal?
For the money, I'd rather have the new Sigma 120-300mm 2.8 that's coming out in a few weeks and use a teleconverter if needed on that.
Got mine a couple weeks ago, not a speck, and still not a speck. Either they fixed the problem or I was lucky and got a good model. I'm sure there are probably bad ones still floating around somewhere. Make sure you buy one from a reputable place and you'll probably be alright. http://mark-papke.artistwebsites.com/
Mountainshots: Beautifully crafted fake reflection. Problem is, it defies the linear properties of reflection. But well done.
Hate to disappoint you but this is not a fake reflection, It is exactly as shot. I may have brightened it a little in photoshop but it is real. I couldn't fake this if I tried. Some people probably could but I'm not that good.
Is there really much need for 1.8 in that focal length?
AnHund: Sigma is never going to be a success.
Sigma has been around since 1961, I'd hardly say they are not a success.
I think its great that they are doing that. Nikon and Canon wouldn't have done that, They would have just said too bad so sad. I could easily find $4800 dollars worth of Sigma products to use it on.
NZ Scott: I found this odd, as I can't understand how a country's national flag can be "a symbol of freedom".
What is your county's symbol of freedom?
map1273: It is because of our great armed forces that we can remain free. Maybe in your country they mean oppression, but in ours they fight for our freedom as well as many other countries.
Our flag is the very symbol of freedom and our armed forces defend it. Besides, these are no longer military planes, they are used for exhibition. It is because we are free that we can have airs hows like this.

Why do they say enthusiasts will love the optics of the 180mm macro, are they saying the optics aren't good enough for professionals?
