    I'm happy that I have this lens, and I recommend it to anyone looking
    for a fast digital lens. If I didn't have it, I wouldn't have been able
    to sneak up on my son and dog and run off a bunch of shots before they
    woke up. (OK, it was taken at f/2.2, ISO 100, 1/60. But the point remains.)

    No thanks, I already have a few.

    OH! I see. Nikon D200. Son is 12 years old, looks like he's 16.

    Yes, he does. The Nikon is working well with that Sigma lens. Is the
    auto-focus quick and accurate?

    The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is known for that type of distortion. There
    should be a PS Sigma 30/1.4 plugin that will correct it, but an
    unfortunate side effect is that it will turn the mutt into a pup.
    Would you happen to have an extra D200 or two to spare? It would be
    much safer in my hands than in those of a yoot that hasn't yet
    gotten his hormone management skills into shape. In exchange I can
    offer a valuable, pristene, never used Win2000 package. Maybe even
    throw in a copy of MSDOS v.6.21 for your son. He looks like a
    hacker that would know how to use and appreciate it.

    The D200 is a pretty fast focuser, and the lens is a nice, quiet focuser
    too. Of course, if you shoot at 1.4 the depth is going to be razor-thin
    no matter what, but even handheld I was happy with the pictures I've gotten.
