I completely agree. The AF is quite fast, and it's such a great focal length range. I'm looking forward to using this one for a while.

^^^^^^

Mine backed focused on my 50D,, not a problem with my 20D..

A little AF Micro Focus adjustment and everything is good.

I've used my Tamron SP 1.4X TC (white model) with my 50-150mm with great results for sports.

I have the original version of this lens and both the Sigma 1.4 and 2x converters . I would suggest using a 1.4 converter instead of a 2x tc for sports .

Let us know if you have any focus issues,especially at 150mm(f/2.8).I have gone through 2 of them with focus problems mostly at 150mm and get better at wider focal lengths.Currently I am waiting for Sigma to calibrate my lens,hopefully they get it right.

Did you have to send your camera with it?
