It's a nice lens. Pictures are clear. For me, the autofocus seems to be a little bit slow and sometimes it misses the spot.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX "DG" AF Telephoto Macro Lens for the Maxxum & Sony Alpha Mount.:

after a couple of months of using the focusing mechanism was broken. repaired twice (warranty service). now it's broken again, out of warranty. this is not EX quaity lens. you expect EX lens to be well built--not breaking down after a couple of months of using. great optics, sharp even wide open but how am I gonna use it when there's no focusing??
