Test Driving My New Sigma 17-50 f2.8

I'm a new K5 owner and I just received a new Sigma 17-50 f2.8 (non OS). Today was one of the few without rain we've had so I followed my cat around outside. Here is a pic out of the camera with no post processing. My subject was only fairly willing and I'm rusty but I think this lens is a keeper.

looks quite sharp to me. I love how the tail is just ever so slightly blurred giving the viewer the sense something interesting caught her eye, like a bird maybe?
what was the f stop this was shot at by the way?

This was shot at f-11, ISO 200 at 50mm. I did crop the photo, my only post processing! Thanks for your response.

Would you happen to have a shot at 2.8 to see the sharpness wide open?

Beautiful day today, but could not get outside at opportune time so here is an inside shot at f2.8, ISO 800 at 50mm.

seems like a decent performer at 2.8 i bet it sharpens up pretty nicely by f/4 or 5.6
thanks for the follow up btw
