It looks to have pretty good sharpness even wide open, which is nice.  On the other hand, it seems to have quite bad flare control, one of the worse ones I've seen..

In my experience, that's typical Sigma. I often use the 105/2.8 Macro for portraits because of its ghosting issues, I like the effects you can get.

Interesting lens.  Might need to fit a french flag though... very interesting lens in fact.  Is it parfocal I wonder?

Yup.  It's parfocal though I'd say AF is a little bit off in shorter focal length of my eyes is quite blurry? :D  Here's the link if you want to judge it for yourself.
