Comments about Sigma Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AutoFocus Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Nikon AF D Cameras:

My sample was not focusing correctly on Nikon AF bodies (F5, D300). Focus was just really off.
It is very built, heavy, metal.
On an FM2, the manual focus allowed for relatively sharp pictures at f1.8. Not amazing, but OK for price paid.
I returned mine and do not know if will try another anytime soon.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AutoFocus Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Nikon AF D Cameras:

This is a very good lens regardless of price. Sharp focus, very little light fall off at any focal length, very versitle and produces great bokeh! If it is an EX lens...especially a Macro lens...think Sigma. All day over Nikon!

Comments about Sigma Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AutoFocus Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Nikon AF D Cameras:

Photo quality is excellent. Pictures are sharp and have great color. This is my indoor/low light/night lens.

I just thought I busted my lens when the focusing mechanism was moving forward a bit. I just realized that this was how Sigma designs its manual focus - slide the lens by a few mm's. I'd rather have a switch AF/MF.
