Enjoying the rush of a new lens: Sigma 180mm f3.5

Ordered it Tues after work and picked it up tonight from the local London Drugs.
First impressions: very good build quality and image quality.
Here's the lens taken with my FA31:


and a couple of the FA31 taken with the 180:




I can tell I'm going to enjoy the working distance and the results from it.

Dbh---- That is just plain showing off! You get my 'lusted after' 180 macro, and your test shots are of your FA 31.... Please that is borderline cruel!

How on earth is this helping my LBA and my self esteem? haha

Congrats on the monster.... Cant wait to see your shots of anything other than a FA 77 or a DA 50-135.....

Heh.
I feel lucky to get it - the distributer had sayed that they only had one in PK mount, but they had had it for a long time. I thought that by the time I had saved the $$ it might have suddenly gotten popular. But I lucked out.
Primes rule.

I remember reading a review of this lens where they commented on chromatic aberration.



I can't find any.
