Default Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 II EX DC HSM

Well, I'm thinking about this lens (or the EF 70-200 f/4L), but I'm surprised to see there is no thread in the archive for it. Can people who have this lens post a few shots, full-frame and 100% crops?

Thanks,

Tony

Here's one I took before mine(my fault) broke. It's due back in a week or so. The one at flickr might be a larger size.

people overlook this lens, i sold my 70-200f4L for this
i think this is a great lens for the 1.6 crop, you can have f2.8 with small size and beign black it attracts less attention.
and i like the IQ of this lens more then that of the 70-200f4L

There's a small, yet growing group, of users on flickr.

I'd like to try one of these but the focus issues scare me off, I'm not into sending something brand new in for calibration either. Aahhh to be a gambling man.

We need updates on this thread. I'm thinking this is the perfect lens to combine with a tokina 12-24 for a 1.6x sensor.

This seems like the perfect lens. Anyone know the best place to buy this for the cheapest price (seems it isn't b&h).

I got mine from Sigma4less for $585. This makes 4 lenses I've bought from them with no problems.

Yes, S4L is a great place to get lenses, but all come with the 1 year warranty (gray market). If you go with B&H, Adorama, etc., then the EX lenses (including the 50-150) come with 4 year warranties.

Thats not correct, the lens from Sigma4less came with a 4 year warranty. The included paperwork was for a USA lens, just like all the other lenses I have ordered from them.

Well, there you go. S4L used to sell only gray market lenses, I thought. They must be doing pretty well now.

Yeah, you are correct, they used to sell grey market and I assumed they still did when I bought my first one from them last year. Imagine my surprise when it was delievered with that 4 year warranty and USA paperwork! I don't know when they changed, but I'm not complaining!
