Thanks stevebrot... nice images.
I see your reply on the review page and you say it's nota great lens for 1:1 shots (even static objects?). That's something I'm interested in so if that's the case I may really look for a slightly longer lens. The cheapest I can find the Sigma here in Canada is around $420 (special order from Henry's)... cheapest I can find in US is $299. The Tamron 90mm is going for around $350 CAD (new) on ebay right now so I'm still seriously considering that lens.

I'm going to take a bit more time to figure out what I want. Thanks for the replies so far and I hope to hear more.
