Maybe the comments on improved performance are comparing this lens with the older non-OS version?
If not, then that's very encouraging as the OS version was already very good.

Having owned & used the second generation Sigma 120-300...

no he is comparing with the OS version

A question to those who have handled or purchased this lens:

I am curious... saw a listing on the Sigma site for this lens, and looked at "accessories."  Saw one of the accessories is a tripod mounting collar with foot.... so.... does the lens come with this item, or are they splitting out all the items that used to be included with a lens purchase as accessories in order to lower the list price????  I could not find a "included in the box" list.  Also, does this come with a case?? (I guess it also begs the question, are caps included as well)

the lens does look pretty awesome and I can't wait to handle it!

thank you for your input !!

Received mine on Wednesday.  Yes, the tripod ring is included. It is better than the previous version and includes strap mounts if you carry it that way.  Case looks exactly the same as the previous edition. Yes, caps incl as well. Buy the dock!

Mine had significant back focus. You can look under 3rd party lenses for a post I did this weekend including some samples.
