    I purchased this lens about a week ago. I have not had the opportunity to shoot many pictures with it but from the first time I tried it the Auto Focus failed to work with the shutter button. It does focus (fairly accurately) with the AF button on my Canon 40D. I contacted Sigma and after 4 days they had not given me an answer. I wrote again and the reply I got was that maybe because the 40D was a new Canon model the engineers had not taken some adjustments into account. They also said that it would take them about a week to get a reply from the engineers.
    With Canon I usually get a reply to my email within one day and the explanations to my questions are accurate and to the point.
    This is not a cheap lens but compared to a Canon L lens its very much less. I guess the poor service and the engineering flaw is the difference in price between a Sigma and a Canon L lens.

    I am a beginner in using SLR. I used this lens to take several photos of my watch. this lens will hunt around for about 2 times if you set it to full focus range. The viewfinder looks reasonably bright. HSM is silent, seems to be silent than my Canon 50 F1.4 USM. However, this lens is SUPER difficult to use. It is a 150mm Macro lens. The depth of field is so short when focusing close and at F2.8. How short is that? just take a look with the watch photo i uploaded. (the 3 hands are just about total thickness of 1mm …) So, if you want to have decent depth of field, you need to narrow it down to about F11 or even smaller. You will need a tripod in this case… And, Even slight movement of flowers caused by wind will make it out of focus… ( I actually use AI-servo when using this lens to take flowers~!) Don’t spend money on this lens unless you are a pro in macro photography. Wait for the 70-200 Macro…

    The lens is sharp and the extra reach is a plus especially out in the field.

    I had this lens just for a couple of weeks. But it already amazed me. It’s incredibly sharp at F2.8 and it’s totally usable.

    Focus is fast on my D700, and my friend tried on his D200 Body, the focus is much slower. This one can be used to shoot sports as well. Closeup shots are fantastic!! I just love it.

    I have a Nikon D300 & D80 and this lens is fantastic on both cameras. It is one of my favorite lenses for weddings – during the ceremony for close-up & low lights and at the reception to capture great candids without being in anyone’s face Also, the macro feature is great for capturing intricate details like lace, rings, etc. I highly recommend this lens, to boot, you can’t beat the price!
