A big thread to go through! Excuse my laziness, but can anyone comment on the AF in low light, aka shooting live gigs? Crammed right up on the stage, I need something wider than my 30mm. Right now it's a toss up between the Canon and the Sigma since everyone who has reviewed the lens downplays the Sigma's focus speed in comparison to the Canon, but there is no mention of accuracy in low light. I don't want to miss the shot! Can anyone help me out?

I just received this lens yesterday. I am impressed! The OS is silent. I had to do some test shots in low light to see if it was working! And man, does it work. It's my first lens with this feature. It's really quite nice. I think I am going to love this lens. I was all-prime for a while, but decided I really need a zoom lens to chase my 3 year old daughter around.

Here she is at the park tonight, feeding the ducks with her broken arm.

I am thinking I might eventually go for the Sigma 50-150 2.8 OS to go along with this one. That would be an awesome set up.

Just ordered this lense from 42Photo.com for 598 bucks with free shipping. Ordered Saturday and UPS tracking says it should be here Wednesday. After reading tons of reviews and seeing hundreds of pictures taken with this lens, I have to say I'm super-excited. I just hope I don't have the problems that alot of others have had with the autofocusing. (Especially since I'm hoping to use this lens for a wedding in just a couple of weeks)
I'll post some pictures soon hopefully.
