Looks like the Sigma 19mm 2.8 could very well be a great lens for low-light close-quarters wedding reception photography...

Peter Chin is my real name.
In lieu of Year of The Snake, a local store had 3 snakes for customers to get a free photo with. I like this one not for composition but more for the reactions on the faces you can see.

19mm is great for tight space photo Ops, i'm right in the action.

I don't know if I have a bad copy but I have issues focusing with my 19 Sigma. I'm about to return it. Here's one sample image.

Can you further describe what you mean by "issues focusing"? Manual or Automatic?

Is the lens hunting for focus in low light? If so, is your camera updated to the latest firmware?
Is the lens hunting for focus in bright light? You might have a bad copy of the lens. But check the camera's firmware anyway.

Do you think you are focused, but the pictures are blurry? The lens has no stabilization, so check for camera shake due to low shutter speed.

Those are the first things that come to mind.

Autofocus...and yes, hunting for focus and when it appears to have focused, the part of the image that should be in focus is not....I'll go back and check the shutter speeds but don't think it was that. Light was adequate, indoor and outdoor. Camera was last updated couple weeks ago with 1.01(?) software...
