It is good of you to post these.  I find this lens quite sharp and the manual focusing does take some practice.  But I like the long throw.

To me, the most surprising aspect is the AF - I use it in situations like moving insects and it is quite accurate and not slow.  I had not thought to use AF for macro, before this lens.

Overall it does seem like Sigma has designed this lens for stationary subject(products, flower, art, etc) with that long focus throw(as mentioned in reviews). I am waiting for the rental shop in my city to have this lens so I can try it for myself and shoot some wild flowers from Western ghats.
