just had a e/mail saying that my lens has been dispatched so back in the game tomorrow .after talking to a tecky at sigma it appears they have replaced a lens cam internally and replaced the front element .he wasn't sure if that meant the front glass or the internal one .
please note though that my lens is now a few days under 3 years old and has been used virtually daily during that time taking 100 to 500 shots per day ,so I would really add thats fair wear and tear

That doesn't sound the same as mine. Thanks for responding.

I sent mine in for warranty work after just over a year. Typically it would take 3-4 shots, then the image in the viewfinder would go quite dark, and the shutter would no longer release. Turning the camera off, removing and reinstalling the lens would sometimes correct the shut-down, but only for another 3-4 shots. Returned with no explanation of actual repairs - but works flawlessly again.

anyway a couple of test shots from this morning checking it out ,pleased with the results .

Quiet in this thread at the moment. Shame as I really like this lens, more so than my Canon 100-400mm MKII.
