i am still rockin' an old 50 1.8 II, which I am looking to replace. This sigma might well fit the bill... but like anything, i'll see what people say once they get their hands on it before i make any decisions!

Does anyone but me find it bizarre that the APS-c version is actually wider than the full-frame version? If they could make this one 16mm, it seems like they could have made the full-frame version 24mm.
I have one and use it with 70-200L IS II as well, the "knob" is quite far from the lens' tripod mount itself but depending on what sort of head and quick release you use it might still get in the way. I use Manfrotto 322RC2 head mostly and its locking arm requires a bit trickery as it's between the mount and the "knob", but is usable.
The polarization in this topic to me clearly shows that there is a big difference in people's personal preference when it comes to subjective lens qualities that determine the way a lens 'draws'. Sometimes a lens that is technically imperfect makes better pictures, something that is personal and difficult to quantify. Maybe the 24-70 II is too perfect, too clinical?
