If the quality of this lens is as good as they say... this will be one heck of a lens to own!

I've read in two places now that some people are having AF problems with some of the Sigma art lenses. Pye Jirsa from SLR lounge wrote about this and I saw it somewhere else as well. Anyone here had any experience with this??

Personally if I could find a good Sigma 14/3.5, I'd be happy.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Very impressive sample images.

Especially impressed with the shots of the Milky Way!

I couldn't get a decent image of the nebulous fog, but this lens seems to nail it.

F1.8 is nice, but what would you use it for with a 14mm lens?

No clue to be honest but my friend told me he shoots the sky at nigh at the fastest apertures for the best results and his stuff is amazing. Looking at some of the shots on his website are at 1.8.
