compared to:
price paid:999 gbp
negative:Heavy. Expensive.
comment:Another of Sigma's excellent art lenses.

Superb image quality.

The only real problem with this is that it is overly heavy and possibly a bit front heavy.

This is an issue if you want to carry it all day. If you can cope with the weight, then the images you get are extremely sharp.
