Is the Sigma 24-70mm HSM Worth It?

I've been thinking about getting the Sigma 24-70mm HSM. Just wanted get feed back from users, reviews seem to be mixed. The price seems right. I have a 16-50mm I got used and it has some SDM issues, but still takes solid photos. If Pentax comes out with FF it might be worth to have a standard zoom on hand.

Thanks for any feedback good or bad!!

My Sigma 24-70 pretty much stay on my camera full time. The 70mm end is handy for portrait and HSM is faster than SDM, but for landscape & IQ, the 16-50 shine. If you are considering FF, 24-70 coverage will be a better choice. That is why Canon & Nikon both offer FF & Pro version of 24-70.
