what you have read is correct. there are some issues with the lens which is why i got it for about $400. there have been some af issues. i am probably going to send it to get it serviced by sigma. but it doesnt really focus slow. a better way to describe the issue is that it get hung up while focusing if there is a big difference it the depth that you want to focus on.

i would have loved to buy one of the newer versions because a lot of the bugs have been worked out over the year but i just couldnt afford it.

now if i was a professional i would not have bought this lens due to these issues.
