okay guys, how real is this AF issue on this lens? is it anywhere near as bad as the Sigma 30/1.4? i’m really considering this lens but i can’t afford AF issues especially since the 5D has no micro adjust, thanks :)

Worse comes to worse you send your camera and the lens to sigma for a week or so and they calibrate it so it works perfectly on your camera :)

I admit my Sigmalux's hit rate is the lowest of all my lenses, but at the same time i love the thing, it really is worth the hassle to get it calibrated (Which i probubly will do sometime i have some downtime actually)

All the copies I went through the store had issues. I bought two of them used off here, both work fine. Although for some reason on my XSI, my current Sigma 50mm would focus fine, but on my 5D2 I need -2 MA to hit at f/1.4, at which it's still a bit soft for my liking.

haha i know the game, i had to do that with my sigma 30/1.4 :/ the images coming from this lens just look awesome though. i think i’m just going to keep buying/returning until i get one that’s just right haha

I hear you don't have to send in camera body with lens...just the lens for calibration?

Giving them the body lets them see that the lens is specifically matched to your body

otherwise they're just going to take a guess most likely

it works slightly better on my 7D, but microfocusing makes it worse, but i'm trying to get this to work with my 60D. can you post some unedited crops at 100%?

Thanks.


If microadjustment does not work (and you are adjusting it properly), then send it to Sigma.

I posted an image a few days ago with a 100% crop

Just called the NY office and they recommended that the body and lens go together for calibration.

You only need to send your body if it is one that does not have microadjustment. Otherwise it is easy to make an adjustment (if necessary) once you get the lens back.
