True! Everything seems fine. Just picked it up. Thanks!

I love mine, although it is a bit on the heavy side.

This lens is so much fun to just shoot stuff :) It can give commonplace scenes an artistic touch.

Here's a couple of shots of my wife's doll. Love this lens!

100% crop - nice and crisp

I just heard about this lens for the first time when it cave up for sale in the local classifieds. I jumped on the opportunity. The lack of coma will come in handy if I ever get out for some astrophotography again. In the mean time l will keep myself entertained by reading this thread.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

You won't be disappointed! I recently made a switch to Fuji but, held onto my 7DII as a backup (for now) I sold off pretty much all my high end L-glass but, kept the Siggy because it is just that good!

when I switch over to Fuji, I'll actually use an adaptor for this lens on the Fuji. Because I think the colours will work well together

Haven't posted a picture in a long time. Not sure if I still know how. Anywho, bought this lens a couple weeks ago and haven't really been able to use it. The few times I have I love it! Love the focal length! Here's a couple.

Out of curiosity, for the regulars in this thread, what year does the date code on your lenses read? It's the 3 digit number.
