after some fog rolled in it gave a nice color tint and darkened it enough to get a little more detail...

I have finally packed mine up and sent it to Sigma for calibration... hopefully it comes back as sharp as some of the copies used on here!

It will be interesting to see when we both get them back then... I sent it with RM special delivery so they'll only be 2 days apart.

Fingers crossed they're both sharp :)

Ah, but that was at MA +20 and even then I think it was further out - I sent off the 50-500 OS that was similar and when I got both camera and lens back it was spot on :)

lol, got mine back and I don;t think they worked on it at all - no drain on the battery, MA still set to +20 and it looks as bad as it did when I sent it.

I took three shots, one at zero MA, another at +20 and a third using liveview at x10 - guess which was the sharpest!

EDIT: Its back with them again!

I'll have to go through and add all my awesome photos of late here but I did single this out. I got bored and being on SNOOPIE I though I'd go tactical spying on those...um...well I'm a spy. I can't say. Shhh!

Here are some from mine, which now at just over a year old has developed a fault with the aperture blades (wont stop down properly, randomly overexposing shots). When it works, this lens is pretty good, but I wont be buying another Sigma after all the dramas i have had with this lens, and a 24-70 that ended up being returned.

I had an update from them at the end of last week and there's good and bad news... Good news is that I was right, it is very soft; however, the bad news is that's it's going on holiday to Japan for 4-6 weeks to be fixed because they can't sort out the optical side in the UK.
