There's no thread for the non-DG model, so I'll post up a few pictures I took this weekend... I'm more than impressed with the performance of this lens. All of these were shot wide open.

I asked about fixing a slight front focus issue I have, this was the reply:


Please send to us at:

Sigma Imaging (UK) Limited.

13 Little Mundells, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, AL7 1EW

Where we can check/repair your lens.

With a letter stating problems, a return address and a contact telephone number.

Our current turnaround is approximately 2-3 weeks.

Standard charge for this type of repair is £30- 50 for a service is £90 - £120 subject to inspection.



This was back in April though, I never took them up on it as micro adjust fixes the front focus. If you're still in warranty it may be covered?
