I bought it months ago, so I can't really remember. If not mistaken, it's around $60-$75. If you have a good tripod, I don't think you need it, unless you take a lot of nite shots.

Yes, I think the building is called the Hill Street building, but don't blame if I am wrong. :)

Whoa...!! Thank you very much guys!

Actually, I don't deserve any applause for these photos. Taking night shots like this needs no special skill at all. It is very easy. All you need to have are just a sturdy tripod and a camera that allows long exposure like 30 seconds or so.

USM stands for Ultra Sonic Motor, a term used by Canon, while HSM is the Sigma's term for Hyper Sonic Motor.

The advantage of having USM and HSM in lenses is basically a faster (and quieter?) auto-focusing. Hope I am not confusing you.
