Sigma 50 1.4 - Back Focusing - Dealer than can get it right...
Oct 25, 2012

I purchased a Sigma 50 1.2.  It was back focusing more than my 5D III could adjust for.  I sent it back and they sent me a replacement.  Same deal.

The solution they offered me was to send my camera and lens into Sigma for them to calibrate it.  I wasn't willing to do that.

All that said I really liked the lens - when shooting at 2.8 it created gorgeous images.  I just couldn't get the focusing accurate enough to shoot it any more open.

Does anyone have advise on a dealer that can help me get a copy of this lens that will work without sending my camera to Sigma?

Thanks.

Mark
