Bought this for travel, not knowing what to expect. It was ~$450. I am pleassntly surprised. It's a little big, but nothing like the Nikkor 28-70. Seems pretty fast, well built and gives really good color, sharpness and pretty darn decent "bokeh". I consider this a real bargain!!
Here's one from it.

I recently attended a class hosted by Will Crocket from Shootsmarter.com and he raved about the qualities of your Sigma lens. He mentioned that they tested the lens at their facility and it showed no signs of "drift". I guess drift is something where the f-stop actually changes, but your lens did actually maintain an f2.8 thoughout. The image that you posted looks tack sharp. Good luck and have fun with your new lens.

I have no problem buying a third party lens like Sigma or Tokina. To me they end up being almost or AS good as the Nikkor or Cannon at about 1/2 or even 1/4 the price. Happy Shooting.
