Just snapped these today in the yard. Both shot with my trusty D200, handheld, and PP'd in NX2:

It's a fantastic lens with a host of uses. But I can see why they call it the "Bugma".

C&C welcome.

great pics
i tested the 300/4 + 1.4 TC on the D3 yesterday thinking I would sell my sigma 150
The test showed me the sigma is a keeper...

Nice stuff. I'm on the waiting list at B & H for one.
They seem to be in short supply, rightfully so.

Thanks, all, for the good comments. The Sigma is probably my most used lens and definitely one of my favorites. And it's the only macro lens I've used that maintains a constant aperture at close-focus range - e.g., you can actually achieve 1:1 macro shots at f/2.8, which, allowing for faster shutter speeds, makes handheld macros a lot easier than one might think.

Cheers,
Steve
