done using the xvario and some simple editing. i would imagine sigma's offer would be accepted widely now that xvario has eaten bulks of the "slow lens = crap" lashes on initial launch.

Hi Marcus

Could you tell what are in practice pros and cons of this lens in X Vario?


Con : SLOW lens

Its usable up to ISO 1600. 800 for really clean files. One thing that i have come to accept, once u have such a high quality zoom, the pro overdo the cons in a big way. I realize that i can get much more interesting photos without limit. Often with the DSLR, although i carry 2-3 lens, i end up just using 1 anyway, changing lens somehow triggers a halt to whatever i am doing.
