i've never had to play musical chairs with the sigma 30. but i have had to send back 3 15-85s before the current 4th one came.
Like others have said, the whole Sigma issues are blown out of proportion. It certainly doesn't help when you buy the lens with a preconceived notion of it being bad out of the box - it makes you look for issues that may or may not even exist! How do I know? Because I've owned the Sigma 30, 50 (2x), and 85 and they have all been perfect out of the box. Like yourself, I've had worse luck w/Canon lenses than with Sigmas as well. It could happen to any lens.
