|My style is changing due, mostly, to recent illnesses. I rarely, if ever, shoot long and for Macro I have the ZD 35 and the ZD 50 thus the Sigma has become redundant.
Last summer I was negotiating a sale on this lens and the potential buyer had front focus issues on his E-3 so that deal was not consummated. I have used the lens on my E-1s, My E-620 (now sold), L1s, and E-330 with no focus issues at all so I'd suggest that if you have an E-3, don't buy the lens. The E-5, E-30, E-620 can all adjust any issues.

I already have one of these and so am not in the market, but I have to say that it's a great lens for macro photography of critters that are hard to approach closely enough with a 50 mm lens (butterflies, dragonflies, etc.).
I also had front-focus problems with my Sigma 150 mm on my E-3, which were ultimately resolved by sending both to Sigma. Mine works fine on my E-5.
