I too have researched this lens however I have decided on it and will be getting it next month. I had a look on the sigma web site...
www.sigma-imaging-uk.com and there are several reviews on there at the bottom of the page, hope it helps.

I got this lens some time back and am fairly pleased with it. It is heavy but lighter than some others of compariable length. Obviously works better on a bright day, takes a bit of getting used to the weight.

They struggle to balance at first, but once they get it, wow! Wink
