    I picked up a Sigma 24-60 2.8 last week. So far I am loving this baby. A few shots from the extremes:

    Nice photos. You don't read many bad reviews on Sigma lens. People that have them sure seem to like them. Been looking @ the 17-70 lens. Will definitely consider this one.

    Nice pics MK.

    I am going to get this lens. I think it will compliment my 70-300IS.

    If you want to consider this one, act fast. It's been discontinued and once those that are out there get gone... $220 at Cameta through Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002ALDKO

    misskitty5077, you didn't do any postprocessing besides resizing, right? I am asking because the photos seem a bit soft, so I assume they were not sharpened?

    No. I didn't even resize, Photobucket did that.

    I shot in RAW and converted to JPG with no adjustments at all.

    I suck at sharpening. Some day I will figure it out. :embarassed:
