In reply to Ross Drummond, Oct 9, 2011

Hi Ross,

I have 2X identical 8-16mm Sigmas - 1 is about 2 yrs old or whenever they realeased them, and 1 was purchased the same day as the A77 ( The reason I have 2 is that due to the nature of my work, I have legally binding contracts to deliver regular photos of sites and as my original one has already had one nasty contact with concrete, 1 need to have a backup option. Since the Japanese Tsunami, some Sigma lenses ( Including this one ) have been in short supply here in New Zealand

Both work fine on the A77

I see that several of your photos posted were at 8mm and assume that you are using the Sigma 8-16 mm lens. Corkcampbell notes another Sigma lens which he is using. Is it your experience that with newer Sigma lenses (purchased post A33/A55 problems) that there are no difficulties with these lenses and the A77? I am very encouraged as I also own the Sigma 8-16 which was purchased after the lens modifications to make it work with the A55 and didn't really want to have to send it back to Sigma for rechipping.
