I agree that the price is fantastic, but how many folks here are confident enough in terms of Sigma's AF speed and accuracy to purchase this pre-order? I ask this in all seriousness, I'm curious to see especially the responses of folks who own the newer Sigma lenses. I sold all of mine 3 years ago after not enjoying hit/miss rate very much.
Won't be pre-ordering, but will definitely be renting it for a wedding sometime next year for sure. I rented the 85 1.4 and was pretty impressed by it. It's hard to tell how much of the keeper rate was due to my own technique and what was the lenses fault but overall I thought it did pretty good as long there wasn't a huge change in the subjects position.
