cgarrard: Does sound decent afterall. I'll be honest, my first thought was "sheesh, really Sigma, yet another redeux of this lens???", but after reading the specs etc. it seems like a legit replacement/update and a decent performer.

I'd need to see its optical improvements (if any) and AF speed, build, before coming to a final conclusion, but on paper it seems pretty legit. Bit slow on the long end though, especially with Nikons recently announced 18-300mm f/3.5-f/5.6.

tabloid: f3.5-f6.3...lol

For me personally that would be unusable.

Jack of all trades lens.

And yet Sony's (formerly Minolta's) 500f8 still autofocus' with no issues. Yes, I know it's a one of a kind but it works on all a-mount cameras. So clearly, they can AF at f/8 ...

Nicely done, the bokeh seems to work on this background.

As an aside, you need to be careful. If you were to use this photo professionally, I know from experience, there are some nice big fees that you could be up for. Mostly it seems, to discourage use.
