And last (but not least) new Sigma just doesn't feel right. It's like Batman first batch of helmets - looks kewl, black and shiny, but when you smack it, it cracks open. By which I mean the plastic feels cheap to touch
IMHO, because Sigma has been at the lens game for a while, the proto-Batman analogy is clever but not really appropriate in this case. I left the 35mm out on my desk for a week, just to stare at it. I believe it is a thing a beauty.
