Pros: Looks cool!
Cons: Aperture shutting down and locking

Hi, I bought this lens at the same time as my D60 which is several years ago and found it fantastic for landscape photography, the image sharpness is some of the best I have seen and at weddings for the big group shots it is a godsend, It feels robust and must be fairly tough to have survived with me for several years as I don't really treat kit with the respect it deserves.
One of the only things I can find wrong with this lens is a problem I have had twice, and when on a job it is a problem you can do without hence the 6 rating.
I was taking photographs of a group of people who work for an energy firm and we all went outside for the group shot, I took the photo and the lens stopped down to the relevant aperture and locked at something like f16, so viewfinder very dull and stuck at shooting at f16. I took it back to the shop wher of course the problem resolved its self. about a week later the same thing happened. I had to send it back to Sigma for repair at a cost of 165.00 but to be honest It hasn't given me any more problems since but I still do not trust it 100%.
