    Well after seeing the wonderful shots that have been posted with this lens, and reading the great reviews, I finally won a bid for one on e-bay yesterday. I probably paid too much, but as long as it is as good as it sounds, I won't mind. We will see if I can post shots that will do the lens justice.

    I agree. I paid more than I wanted to for mine as well, but it's a great lens. I need to use it a little more.

    So I received the lens yesterday. It appears to be in perfect condition, the focus is nice and smooth, the aperture blades seem snappy and clean, the glass looks wonderful. I was not expecting the lens to be so small and well made. It is going to look stunning on my camera. Now only if my adapter could hurry up and get here!

    Incredible images mate, a very good lens from what I've seen in some really great examples, as given us: Claire and now your pics, the bukeh is very nice, the size looks great in the nex6, looks very compact and cool.

    Nice shots, but why are you taking pictures of a mop?

    Well I payed $200 usd for mine which seems to be the average auction winning price for good examples, so probably a bit more than what it's worth.

    Thanks for your information. I'm actually not a fan of AF lenses but in that focal length is nothing on the market. Maybe brings Sigma a verry good lens on the market but there are still no test data on known.
