    looks good enough. i must have tested a lousy copy. was the d700 ca protection turned on? i know the guy who showed it to me on a 7d was so happy about it and i was thinking my 30 y/o 501.2 performs better wide open..
    F3, FTN, D700, just primes =)

    Thing to note is that sigmas over the years have some funky qc issues. Really need to test and make sure you get a good copy.

    CA correction can be turned off and on? Sorry bro, I am not aware there is such an option. Even in raw, the ca looked as low as the jpeg.

    Yes the 1.2 ais is a good one. I have one too. But sometimes, when you need AF you need AF. And I find the bokeh of the sigma to be better, especially when there are bright lights and you get some donuts.

    yea. always hear of qc issues. i would like to try a good copy of the sigma 50 and 85 primes one day. i dont think i ve gotten any donuts on the 50 1.2 before, but it is sometimes irritating to see the not-round oof highlights when you stop down to 2.8 and lower. I dont ever use AF so it suits me perfectly =P

    Hehe don't forget about the Series E 50 1.8, got one off ebay and loving it. Despite its age, older MF lens tends to have its quality unswayed.

    Not that i say newer ones aren't as gd.. i'm sure the 1.8G will look awesome as well. But for the price i paid..def a gem to keep for the pancake size.
