If you are pretty strong this is a nice lens, the heavy weight makes the lens very stable if you can handle it (IMO).
The lens is not as sharp as the beercan, but when focussed correctly it's very close.
The biggest advantage of this bigma is ofcourse the huge range, it gives you a huge advantage in dynamic shooting environments.
