Long time no see. Here's my take on Sigma lenses for what little its worth: I have personally found them to be optically very good and every single one I have used has exhibited a definite warm/yellowish bias. I can see that in your examples, it's not a big deal really but it has...
I am so sorry that I missed you Sunday morning at the dam. I am embarrassed to death. :redface: I had forgotten about the gathering and when I arrived you guys were scattered all over the place but I thought I had met everyone. Next year!
