This is what I found on my Sigma 85/1,4 too.. after some time the focus accuracy was lower as it was new..

don't know about accuracy though

Talked with a wedding photog about his Siggy 85 1.4: it's great when new, or right after repair (had it repaired once), but its high AF torque seems to wear it down over time, to the point where focus accuracy diminishes. He needs to send his in again for service. Has had it for over a year, and uses it heavily for his wedding and portrait work.
