Sigma EX DG 24-70mm/2.8 macro

I just pick up one of these lenses new for a price I couldn't pass ( $220.00 ). It's big but is seems to be a great lens.
Heres a couple 100% crops @ 2.8. This isn't a technical stiuation, just a quick test and both handheld.
Bokeh seems to be rather pleasant I think also.

ISO 250 1/15 sec


ISO 400 1/125 sec


What do ya think?

Dang, no comments 200+ views? Maybe I should have done a more thorough test and review.
I think these photos are plenty sharp for F2.8 but my aging eyes lie to me sometimes.
If someone can tell me what I have done wrong I am open to suggestions. as always.

I just sold my K7 though so it might be sometimes before I post any photos.
I really feel naked at the time with no camera.

Not at all! That photo of the snowman looks wonderful, actually. Very sharp, nice DOF. How do you find the lens handles? The price alone is indicative of a bargain, but don't feel too bad about the lack of responses. Sometimes it takes a little kick-start to get a discussion going.

Thanks for your response paperbag846.

Well, as I mentioned it is big, quite a bit bigger than the DA* 16-50 and it is going to take a little to get used to the backward zoom. It is longest at 24mm. But it is built well like most Sigma EX lenses. 82mm filter
