Well the mailman came, and am I ever disappointed! I opened the box, took out the lens and 'tried' to mount the lens on my camera. I say 'tried' because the lens does not fit! Upon closer inspection I discovered that the lens that I received is for a SIGMA mount!
I don't know who is at fault here: me or Adorama, but I am sorely disappointed!
I had this exact same experience last month. When the lens first went on sale for $289, I missed out on Amazon because I hesitated on ordering it while at work.... then B&H and Adorama both sold out for a minute. I got back on a while later and when I refreshed I saw B&H had them in stock. I hastily got out my credit card and purchased what I thought was the Sigma for Canon lens. When UPS guy dropped it off a few days later, it was a LITTLE too small for my T3i..... Man that was a disappointing evening. Oh well, I finally got it right, but now I'm certain my copy has focus issues as well. Contemplating sending it to Sigma from Missouri for calibration. Not sure what the shipping/insurance cost would be on that trip though.
Oh well, just thought I'd share and tell you I feel your pain!
