I had a very pleasant experience yesterday. My Sigma 17-70, 2.8-4.5 was having focus issues with my new a77. I called Sigma and the service rep offered to check it out if I sent it in. Then he told me about the trade in program. Sigma will offer 10-12% credit by trading in one of their lenses on a new lens. The 17-50, 2.8, APS-C was on sale. I was able to purchase the lens for $509 including my trade in. Not a bad deal on a really nice lens. I know that if I should have any issues, I will receive courteous treatment.
Just so I am understanding your deal: They gave you approx. $110 for your 17-70 on the 17-50?
IOW, the 17-50 is selling on Amazon for $619 right now and you paid $509 plus your 17-70?
