sigma 35-135mm alpha IV

Just picked this lens up a few days ago for cheap and was curious if anyone had one or had any information on the lens. It is an "A" lens if that helps. I got some good shots of my son with it and I am pretty impressed with it. Just wondering if anyone has any comments about the lens.

What is an alpha IV?

Aside from that question,

I have a Sigma 35-135mm autofocus that I just picked up and have been VERY happy with the initial results. With the exception of 100-135mm shots getting (somewhat) over exposed when using the 540 speedlite (I am developing a work around) it has delivered fairly sharp, good contrast, and good color shots.

One other thing:

For some reason the 540 speedlite only "reads" this thing at 34mm, 48mm, and 58mm increments on the speedlite display. The jump from 34 - 48mm happens at the matching settings, but once I am past 50mm on the lens the setting (On the 540 display) stays locked at 58mm.

Other than that bit of weird science I am thinking I have found my walking around lens.
