Build Quality of the Sigma 12-24mm lens

When you spend so much money and you get a wonderful build which is simply awesome thing, the feel of lens on the hand. The lens is huge as compared  to other lens. Its adds bulk to camer, that bulk makes you feel pro. You can’t hold the camera with one hand as what you could do in the prime lens, you will need to keep one hand on body and another hand on the lens, feels like holding a telephoto lens.
