Funny, because isn't that exactly what the 50L is?

I rented the lens twice before buying it, different copies, all worked 100% well on my body. No MFA what so ever. When I bought the lens, same story. I guarantee there are more Sigma bad focus threads than 50Ls. The 50 design was inherently flawed and required understanding of this to achieve correct results, where as Sigma generally is a gamble and many have called it the "Sigma Lottery" for a reason. That said heard plenty of bad stories for every lens, since nothing is perfect. However, Sigma is notorious for focus issues and experience so myself first hand.

Got answer from Sigma, look like my lens noise is normal. Now just gotta try them and see if it focus properly.

it goes away after a while. Mine did this new, and is silent now

The Sigma's though are just terrible... How can you go through FOUR lenses, two lenses when the lens first came out and two quite recently for me, and have them all suck. It is unacceptable.

I agree, it is unacceptable: to generalize based on your experience with only 4 lenses. I've tried more than double that amount of Sigma lenses, none with any issues across several different bodies. Yet I don't go around claiming all issues are nonexistent and Sigma lenses are more reliable than Canon because my only problematic lenses were 2 Canons.

I love my 35A. Mine has been spot on, on three different bodies!

the sigmas slightly intrigue me at this point, but only slightly. Personally, I am trending towards smaller primes.... smaller the better, and sigma has been trending larger and larger. For certain types of shooting, variations in size dont matter too much, but for day to day stuff, my shoulders are really nagging heavier gear, since I carry my cams so much.

Anyone going thorough more than 3 copies has other issues at play. Mine misses occasionally, but no more or less than my 24-105. And more often than not, its user error.

No issues what so ever., the AF is as reliable as any Canon lens. Same with the Sigma 85mm. The only Sigma lens I've had AF problems with is the 50mm EX. And it couldn't be micro adjusted because it was off by different amounts at different distances and apertures... I had to sell it.

Get a Sony A7 that'll solve all your problems.
