I have a few thousand... this just happens to be one that I have less than 100 kb. I'll work on providing one or two more if it pleases the court.

Incidently I did sell my lens here and purchased the EFS 17-55. For the record, my Sigma 18-50 performed wonderfully. Fast and accurate (if noisy) focus. Excellent contrast, coloring and resolution. The only reason I replaced it was for the IS. It's a spectacular piece of the glass on it's own, but when you figure in price..

a little front focusing...i think. but maybe its just my pre-schemata i have from all these reviews I keep on reading.

Here's a quick wide open one ( f/2.8 )

Like i've said elsewhere, if you get a copy with decent focusing or if you learn to work around it (like muggins here has to) it's a very sharp lens.

I need to take it out more often.

Here's one of mine - - 21mm f/5.6, 1/80s and fill flash from built in flash.

A 100% crop from another shot I have is - 50mm, f/4, 1/125s ISO 100. No sharpening at all, just levels, and White Balance corrected in Raw Shooter Premium
