Yes I did! :) And, they are great for my first proper head. Haven't had a chance to test them out properly, but will give them their first proper run on a shoot tomorrow.

My only negative so far is their slow flash duration. I've been spoilt by speedlights, so 1/800 for the d-lites isn't gonna be fast enough for any action freezing shots! :confused: ...but then I don't tend to shoot moving subjects and in any case, I plan to upgrade later down the line. So, for the moment I'm not overly fussed...and of course I still can use my speedlights if I wanna freeze motion in the meantime. :)

where did you order yours from? I ordered from BH, it had problems, and they did a return the day my return period expired.
I was on vacation and didn't get home until the end of return peroid.
and they were quick to send me a new on, and the new one had no problems at all.
may be faster to do a exchange then get it serviced.

Mine came from 47th Street Photo, ordered through Amazon. The way I look at it, there is a pretty good chance if I return it to Amazon I will get another lens with focusing issues - seems that people are receiving a copy with issues more often than not. If I just send it to Sigma I'm pretty confident it will be great when it comes back (fingers crossed).

Im a little unhappy with the midframe performance on 5Dmk2. Even at f2.8 group shots turn out less than sharp and I'm pretty sure focus solid.

My guess is you have focus issues...look at some of the examples in this thread.

Try doing some tests on a tripod, manually focusing in liveview vs autofocus in the viewfinder.
