why are you asking the question after you already bought it? Can you return it if people tell you it's no good?

Unfortunately I don't have the lens so I can't help you, I'm just morbidly curious why your asking the question AFTER you made the purchase.

In general all macro lenses are quite good
If you did check the MTF, the Sigma is probably way up there (if not the best) - No one really makes a bad macro lenses anymore!

... The focusing may be slow but really one tends to do manual focus @ high magnification anyway.

I bought it because it was listed in the wrong section on ebay and no one bid on it so i got it for £30.00 ABOUT $55.00 usd and if it aint anygood then i'll relist it on ebay and make some extra money as i know they retail at aronud £200.00 - £250.00 USD $370.00 - $450.00 if its the same bloody one......Just wondered if its ok!!

Thanks for your opinion anyway.....Thanks for you input too...........!!
