How can you evaluate a lens you do not ow ?

Considering my experience with this lens, I guess you will be very disappointed.

It is decentered. Then, it is common that it suffers from front focusing (mine did). This lens is the main reason why I decided to sell my Sigma SD15 camera, and not buying the SD1, investing instead in the DPx Merrill instead.

There is nothing worst than not trusting your camera, and this is finally what I experienced with this lens. When you focus right, and thif picture comes out of focus, there is something very wrong. This lens is perfect on paper, not in real life. Results can be stunning for scenery, but for macros, portraits, it is not reliable.

Well, this is my experience, and I am sure many will tell you the same story. You should instead consider the 17-70 as it semore it does not suffer from these issues...
