This auto or manual focus? Does it have an A on the aperture ring? Don't know anything about sigmas, but I like the range.

jedcaum, it does auto focus, and the manual focus ring is very smooth. There's an A setting for auto exposure. no scratches or fungus. the lens is in great shape. f/2.8 at 24mm is nice for low light situations, but the lens gets sharper stepped down a little. see wallyb's comment from another previous posting. IMO, great lens and range, especially for the money. Selling it and my K100D Super to help pay for an K-X (I want the video), since I use my old primes most of the time.

I have to agree that this is a great lens. I have it in my bag as a backup and everytime I consider selling it I think better of it. Great walk around lens and nice aperture range too.

I did it!

Well I am the guy who managed to get my wife to say ok to me buying the lens. It helps that I have been spending weeks and weeks waiting for a clear day and sunshine to be able to use my slower telephoto lenses. It has resulted in me doing a big reshuffle of lenses in my various bags, backpack and Pelican cases to help the packing make some sense. As a result I found all to many slow lenses and had realized many weeks ago that I needed a lens like this one. I even started a thread on the forum to get opinions about lenses in this general range with the result that this Sigma was the fastest aperture around and most people like the IQ next big step down was the Tamron of the same focal range and then many other local ranges. I used to have a film lens of 35 to 150mm(I think) that was a great walk around lens and spent a lot of time on a camera body. Only thing I used as much was a 24 mm wide angle. I sold those two sometime ago and I thought I had bought the same thing in a Tamron Adaptall 2 35-135 mm but the IQ isn't there plus it is all manual. I realized I wanted this range in AF so I started watching for this lens. Almost missed it time wise but I have snuck in under the wire. I hope I will be happy with it.

i agree that this is an excellent range zoom. i had this before but had to return it because it was playing havoc with my then *istDL's LCD display.

some folks have reported issues with this lens and had to send it to sigma to have the fw upgraded or re-chipped.

hope this one is okay for your K cam.

I have the Tammy version of it, love the focal length although mine is the slower at f3.5 to f5.6. Yet this lens is very sharp and produces vivid colors.

I wonder if these two are in any way related, or how they compare. Nevertheless, very useful focal length.

There is a thread I started awhile ago called "What is a good wide to short tele zoom" that has a lot of references to this lens and the Tamron and other focal lengths. I wanted this one due to it's aperture even though some reviewers said it was soft wide open. I have wanted for many years to get a Good photo of the deer in our neighborhood and this is the year to do it for we have 25 to 30 deer living in 2 parks on either side of our housing addition that travel our street every day, morning, evening and now many times a day. Never before have we had so many in the 20 years I have lived here. I am sure the 2 cities involved will once again have a bow hunt to thin the herd. This time I think they have plenty of deer to go around.
