Had the lens for a while now, figured I should start contributing to this thread since it's what pushed me to get the lens in the first place! This lens rocks! I'm looking fwd to the upcoming sigmalux 85 :)

I read somewhere on here that the Sigmalux has a 10 year warranty. Seems a little long, I can only find info on a total of 4 years of warranty (1 year international + 3 years USA).

What's the warranty on this lens? I'm dying to try one out after a great Sigma 30 f1.4 experience.

thanks

For some reason when I contacted the service center I sent my Sigma to, they said most of the focusing issues were with the 5D2 or other FF cameras. IDK if that's just coincidence, but now mine is spot on and couldn't be happier.

Could also be due to the fact that the DOF is narrower when using FF cameras, and some of the so-called focus errors are actually user error due to a DOF of a few inches?

Total of 5 years I think.

3 years standard and when you register it online, you`ll get an extra 2 years of coverage.

I`m talking about USA warranty only.

Yep, seems like most are user error. Special shooter that are very used to the L lenses.

LOL!

The Canadian distributor of Sigma lenses provides a 10 year warranty for the lenses. Perhaps that is what you have heard about.

hi all...have found a new problem with my sigma 50mm...I can focus on close object fine, but when I try to focus on something further say 50 feet away the focus is completely off...what sort of problem am I facing???

I did try to MA it and it and the result is -16!!! it now focus fine on far object but the focus is off for closer object so I'm guessing sending my body+lens to sigma is the only sure way to resolve this...sigh...


I'm weird - I love my 5D Mark II:D, Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS Mark II8-), Sigmalux 50mm 1.4, Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 + Manfrotto 804RC2, Gitzo GM3551 + Manfrotto 486RC2

When you did this near/far test, was the aperture something other than f/1.4?

If so, this is called "focus shift". It is inherent to the design.

Basically, as the diaphragm opens up, the focus point shifts. I have the same problem: https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=7909206&po​stcount=18

its at 1.4 but happen also at 2.8 you mean its "NORMAL"??? but happen at 2.8 as well so I don't think its focus shift...with close object say 5 foot its good 0ma but arouns 30 and beyond evean at the same 1.4 the focus is screwed...only adjust-16ma seem to fix it...but then the focus for closer object is screwed again...

No, neither of mine do/did that, I've read about it but no, it's not normal, I'd send it in or exchange it...If it's front or back focussing that's one thing....But this is something all together different.
