I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this new lens from Sigma.


I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT and I shoot collegebasketball games. I currently use a Canon 100mm f2 and a Canon 50mm 1.8 and an VERY pleased with the results.

I am looking for something that will give me a little more 'focal flexability' but still be reasonably fast and reasonably sharp, while not driving me to the poor house.

I recognize that in buying a $200.00 lens I am not buying a super high quality piece of optics but provided I take care of it and it produces decent pictures, I can live with that. I dont expect it will match the image quality of my Canon 100mm f2 but again, I can live with that as long as the results are decent. And hey, it may match the results of my f2.

I have yet to see any images shot with this lens, so, having said all that, if anyone has an opinion I would be happy to listen to it and if someone has some images taken with it, I would LOVE to see them!

Thanks all.
