- [...] this lens is beautiful [...] a gorgeous blend of metal and rubber with only a few plastic parts
- [...] the autofocus works [...] very well in daylight. It’s fast and, generally speaking, very accurate
- At night, the lens is a bit less accurate, but it correctly focused (in nearly pure darkness) ten out of thirteen times
- Chromatic aberration is extremely well controlled in this lens
- Flaring is decently controlled at most apertures
- [...] sharp at all focal lengths and apertures
- For Sigma’s first run at a previously never before seen lens concept, this is a rousing success.
- This is so far Sigma’s best APS-C only lens, and it’s the best by leaps and bounds
