i like that, but I'd rotate it just a touch to line the trap up perfectly.

This is a better shot than the ones I've seen of this car on car and driver. Really captures the color. Thanks for that, it is super sexy! What were your in person impressions?

Thanks for the kind words. The WRX was due for a refresh. It is a very beautiful car although the sloaping back end is a little different. The rear of the car looks very nice as well. I have some more shots that I will post up of it. I just want to drive it! :lol:

Got a really lucky break, weather has been foul for the past month or so, then today just when I happened to be out and about with my camera along just in case (as always), the clouds decided to break up a bit :)

This is beautiful! I was only just in Hong Kong a few weeks ago for a holiday and only had one clear day on the star ferry and we went to the peak and came back for the laser light show! Awesome.

Thanks! Yeah, spring isn't the best time to visit HK, too much rain! Autumn is much better :)
Its good that you got a clear day though.

When shooting multiple shots of the same subject (like a brick wall in good daylight), and refocusing between each shot , is it normal that 4 - 5 out of 10 images end up slightly OOF? ..Has anyone else experienced this?

I am not getting these results because of user error. Camera is in fixed position with high shutter speed and cable release.

Edit: If you haven't thought about this, please try and let me know what you find.

If the AF has a target with sufficient contrast, then no, I wouldn't consider that hit rate normal. Although, what do you mean by "slightly"? Maybe post examples of ones that you think are in focus and out of focus.

Can't post any examples right now. I'm at work.

By 'slightly', I mean not completely out of focus, but clearly not where it should be. I can even see the difference when scrolling thru the photos on the camera LCD. I have tried many different AF targets with tons of contrast (brick walls, bar codes, e.t.c) in good daylight, but I am still not getting consistent results.

Just want to know if this is "normal" with Sigma, or if I should return my lens and get another copy.

I was wondering about the same thing!
Just got mine yesterday, didn't have the time to test it outdoors yet, so I'm not gonna go crazy about it yet. Did some basic testing on contrasty numbers under an angle (sort of like a home made test) and I suppose it would hit properly (not as sharp as some stuff I've seen around here, but it's too early to say that) most of the time, in tungsten light. Is it acceptable for it to miss focus every now and then when under tungsten light? I know it's sometimes considered a 'worse' condition than regular light.
I have a week of the possibility to exchange it for a new one right off the bat, so I'd like to know how could I test it better (other than just going outside with it next week when I'm done with some work). Can always send for calibration later on, but I don't feel like sending my camera for over a week just yet! :p Moved from 50 1.8 II to this, so it's a biiiiig change, in price as well and if I've just spent what I, for myself, consider a fortune, I'm bound to be paranoid about it:lol:

edit: can't MFA as it's 5Dc

When you say "under an angle", do you mean the target was at an angle to the camera, with some numbers closer and some farther away from you, like a ruler? If so, the AF point isn't as small as you may think, and could be trying to hit at a range of distances. Try again with a flat target under all the proper conditions such as bright even light, tripod mounted, etc.

Zaps: like Neil said, try against a flat surface with lots of texture. See if you get consistent or mixed results.

Yeah I might do that. Unless that ship has sailed already.

But there's always Sigma service center.

Yeah I basically did the ruler idea :)
Will try as suggested when I have the chance, thanks.
