    No unfortunately it's not the Nikkor, but I'm not exactly worried about it. This thing is amazing, and I really wish I had my QR plate for my tripod to see how sharp this thing really can be. But I'll post up some test shots later.

    Ya gota post feedback as thats my next uprade, where did you purchase? I'm so ticked that I had to buy a flash....huff, snort ..... the sigma 70-200 f/2.8 ED is my next lens, gota wait for another week. local price is $900, online is around $725.

    I know what you mean about it being a "beast" the 24-70 sigma is a cluncker, but worth it

    That's okay. One day when you're in big boy pants you can have one of these. :lol:

    Just kidding, Congrats dude. I'm sure it will serve you well.


    (Garbz, the first thing I noticed was the HSM.... dead giveaway.)

    It's a tack at f/4, and a tripod or monopod helps a lot at 2.8.

    This is 100% crop at 2.8.
