Photozone.de review) as my walking around lens.
My first test shots are here -- all done with the optical stabilization and autofocus on. I resized them down to 2048 by 1536 via Fotosizer. Got these walking the dog in the neighborhood.
UPDATES: Went riding in Nantou and Changhua and grabbed a few pics. One problem appeared -- the lens cap that Sigma packed with the lens is a piece of crap. It won't go on without much fiddling and wiggling. Then I don't know whether it is on or off, and it came off twice inside my bike bag, getting the lens smeared with dirt. Really pissed me off. Below are a few more pics I took on the ride.
