Cool. I'm impressed - but again I think it's more the person behind the lens than the lens itself that makes these pictures come alive.
Thanks for sharing - was thinking about getting that lens...

Ash - the lens is a pretty decent performer (given enough light) and not a bad price , I was thinking about getting the 16-45 for the wide end or a 18-250 ish for more zoom not sure .... but may hang tough and wait the DA* series ..thanks for the compliment .... I am trying and truly enjoy this stuff :-)

Those are very nice.

Someone had suggested this lens in response to a recent post of mine asking about suggestions for a "travel lens". It fits the focal length parameters that I am looking for, but would like something faster (may have to revise my thinking). My gripes with zooms (mostly from my film past) are vignetting and speed. What's your experience relative to vignetting (I thought that I saw a little in one picture) with this lens and how's the auto-focus?

Hmm, but all images are slightly inclined to the right?

Vignetting is not so bad I find but I am no expert ...given enough light and a relatively simple frame Auftofocus is fast - however on difficult subject sometime it just can't get it. I took some of those shots at dusk and I think any of the flaws can be corrected with PP. I am a rookie so in the hands of someone more experieicned the results could be better right out of the camera .

For example on a AF issue I had this night I tried to zoom in on a squirrel in a tree , Autofocus never did get it ... I find the other Sigma 70-300 better with AF but again not stellar (compared to my other two lenses)

Btoom line though for me I think for price and range in daylight it is great and a keeper.
