Summary: I ordered one of this despite that I know Sigma QA problem. This is just a deal I can't pass. I have a Canon 16-35L but at 16mm, the distortion was not acceptable for video.

Conclusion: Agai, lack of Sigma's QC: i bought one second hand, but this lens is a lemon, you can throw it away. The lens was soft overall no matter what i used, really bad till f7.1, from f8 till f22 was overall soft.
Cons: lack of Sigma's QC, lens is soft overall, slow AF
