Re: Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO Satisfied?

I'm very satisfied with this lense - would not hesitate to use it at f/2.8 if thats whats needed (at any focal length).

I do not spend my time pixel peeping, shooting test charts all day and looking to quantify the exact numerical resolution of every lense i own, but i do think its a very nice lense - not razor sharp wide open, but not many lenses are (not for the money you pay for this also). For my purposes it is plenty sharp, and as i said i wouldnt hesitate to use it wide open. If my shots arent sharp then i do not blame my lenses - its more likely it was poor techinque - most modern lenses can produce wonderfully sharp photos with the right technique.

The AF is quite loud, but consistent and accurate, and i dont notice it particuarly and neither does anyone else. I dont get any problems with flair either.
