I also have the suspicion I'm going to be hung on charges of high treason. This is the first Sigma lens I've ever liked (I've tried about a dozen, and they've all gone back and been replaced by their Nikkor equivalents) - but I *really* like this one. What is it? The 30/1.4 EX DC HSM, of course :biggrin: Initial performance impressions: useable at f1.4, very sharp at f2. No sign of 'sigma yellow'. AF is fast and accurate, no backfocus/front focus. I can't see any CA. Optically I feel it's on par with my 50/1.8, and perhaps even a hair better. [Note: I swear my dealer wasn't driving a BMW last week. He'll probably go out of business if I leave the country :tongue: ] Ming Sauces Fast food Tunnel Stormy (full marks to water sealing, by the way. It was bucketing down.)
