Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro
Jan 5, 2013


B&H is having a sale on this lens at $299 w/ free shipping and so I took advantage of it. Got the first copy and the AF did not work properly. I returned and got a second copy with a sticker on the box that says "compatible with A65 & A77". But, lo and behold, the AF is still not working properly - same as the first copy that I got that does not have the sticker.

Does anyone have the same problem? I am debating whether or not to return, since I liked it and with the focus peaking on my A77, it can still be used with manual focusing. No problem whatsoever with my A700.

I am also thinking of keeping it and maybe sending it to a Sigma Service Center, but not sure if there still much they can do since the box already has the sticker "compatible with A65 & A77".

Thanks so much.
