There's a new in-depth review of the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 posted at DP Review.

They're absolutely bowled over by the optics, but unfortunately found the AF accuracy wanting. That said, the lens did get a Gold Star and an 86% ranking.

I wish they add a little to their prices and have better AF. To me, a lens as sharp as anything is pretty worthless unless the AF can make that sharpness happen consistently. Almost all of my favorite shots of the kids are when they are running or otherwise moving quite a lot.

BUT, I love the turn Sigma have taken with all of their new lenses, they've released quite a few, consistently very high quality in (almost) all aspects, and I bet Nikon and Canon are scratching their heads and perhaps having a wtf-moment.. Love that. !
