Sigma 50-200mm

Hey guys, I am a beginnner at photography, you can check my flickr page here - Flickr: N Amit's Photostream and I just bought a Sigma 50-200mm f4-5.6 a couple of weeks ago. I am happy with it, but thought i would like to know how good it really is for a 150$ lens from more experienced guys out here....

I liked my copy quite a bit. Had I not found a deal on the 55-300 I'd still have mine. I came from Sony gear, and their / Tamron's 50-200 was an inferior product, especially its pincushion distortion at telephoto. I read many positive reviews on the Tamron, but that Sigma beat it handily.

This was with my k100d:
