Love it!

Wait, let me rephrase that...

LOVE IT!

Picked my copy up from eBay. It is very sharp and required no adjustment. Probably the best $200 I've spent...

I do like their products, especially the 28/1.8 and 50/1.4. One of the reasons I haven't jumped on the 35L is that I like the Sigma a lot. Obviously the 35L is a stellar lens, but there's no sense of urgency to make a move there. The two zooms hardly get any use. They're more or less backups for my primes.

Another good thing about Sigma (for me at least) is that I can drive to the service center (30 mins away) if I ever need to have something adjusted. I've had my 50 tweaked and the 105 macro rechipped on the spot.

I have to agree with Maxwell. I have had my Sigma 28/1.8 for a month now on my crop body and have fallen in love with it. I will be getting a 5d this week and I can't wait for that combo!!!

This is why I avoid Sigma- their QC is just too lousy. If I buy a lens then I expect that lens to work without the hassle of going through multiple copies...

If they were 30mins away from me then I would reconsider! :)

I think they're fine more often than not. You'll just hear the complainers yell louder than the satified users. Their problems are probably attributed more to the way the lenses are designed (reverse engineering) than the actual quality of the product.

I brought my 50 in because I wanted it to be perfect at 1.4, which ain't happening. I think they adjusted it from 2mm BF to 1mm BF. I can't complain about 1mm at F1.4. My 85/1.8 is far worse in terms of backfocus. I have to shoot wider with it because the BF is pretty bad at anything close to MFD. I'm sending it in at the end of wedding season.

The 105 was just an outdated (pre-DG) model that need to be rechipped. 10 bucks and 10 minutes later and I have one of the sharpest macros around for under $250. I'm not complaining about that either! :)
