It does not suck...and it's $899 right now at Amazon so given some time, who knows...it's an option to a 77ltd for some folks who want the extra speed!

never worry about Sigma MSRP's...figure as rule about 60% of that as the street price.

too bad it's not yet released for the K-mount. Canon Users are somewhat privilege to be the first one to enjoy it. damn.
