comment:Much better picture quality compaired to Tamron AF 19-35 F3.5-4.5. Especialy sharpnes an color are excelent.

I've got the lense last week after 1/2 year of delivery time. This was not so great. Maybe Sigam Germany can improve the ordering process with Japan...

Very fine resultes with film (BW Ilford 400). Lense hood can cast shadows with film/slide/FF.
