Good points:
I use this lens on an EOS 400D, having bought it to replace the 18 - 55 kit lens supplied. I am extremely happy with my choice too. Not owning any Canon pro lenses i can't truly compare build quality with so called "better" lenses, but it's very sturdy, moves well and feels very good. There's definately no looseness or rattling to be found. Mainly shooting outdoors, scenic shots, zoos, buildings etc ..... i am pleased with picture quality. It focuses quick and manual focus is not a problem either. Compared to the Canon 18 - 55mm kit lens ..... well lets just say the Sigma lens has resigned the Canon lens to remain in my bag !
The Sigma AF24-70 F2.8 EX DG Macro lens, for me, was well worth buying ......... I love it.
Bad points:
I haven't got anything bad to say about the lens itself ... for my purposes it performs brilliantly. The 82mm filter thread is quite large so filters can be rather expensive, but with a bit of shopping around that can be overcome.
