    Ooooooooooooh nice! I'll have mine tomorrow (with any luck)... Congrats!

    Now get something posted in the Sigma 70-200 thread. :D

    Love the bokeh too... creamy.

    How does the build feel? I've head it's got a pretty solid feel to it...

    Ya man this thing is really nice. I was first hesitant to buy anything that wasn't nikon but now that i've used this today it's great. If it stays like this I think i'll maybe even pick up a sigma 24-70 2.8 depending on funds. Thanks!

    It feels great in my hands. The only thing that is going to be taking some getting used to is the focus ring is like where I would think the zoom would be, but i'm already getting used to it by tomorrow it will be nothing. I was expecting weight but wow it really does have some weight on it especially when i put it on after having my 35mm 1.8 on it lol. The zoom and everything feel really good and no front/back focusing issues as of now.

    Nice shots! Have fun with the lens! I think it's the next thing on my wish list. Probably will get it in one year, though.

    Post more ! The bokeh is so very nice and creamy! Just curious, did you consider the Tamron 70-200 2.8, and if so what made you decide Sigma?

    No i didn't really consider the tamron. It was between the sigma and the nikon 80-200 af-d and I read that the sigma blows it away in focusing speed and i'm wanting to start some sports and stuff so I choose the sigma. Also I read a lot of great reviews on B&H website for it and I decided for 811 shipped I couldn't beat it. I'll get some more in a sec uploading some more from a few minutes ago!
