Yep. You should be quite happy with it. The Canon is a bit better, but like many, I don't think it's "better enough" to justify the cost difference. This lens works and shoots as the premium quality lens that it is and that's what matters to me.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.

+1. The only thing I wish it had sometimes it's a focus limiter but otherwise, I'm very happy with the sigma. This is even after renting the Canon Mk II many, many times before.

It just got the lens and have some interesting noises going on, I'm assuming some are normal.
OS mechanism makes clicking noises when activating, sometimes when using, and when turning off.
HSM makes click noises when starting up and sometimes when focus is coming back and forth, it makes noises like the focus cannot go anymore.
It's not really obvious in a semipopulated setting, but when you're in a house or outside by yourself when it's peaceful, it's pretty obvious.
