I have had this problem with 2 Sigma 17-70 lenses that i bought and returned.

I was able to find one that did work and I really do like the lens - it is a definite upgrade to the kit lens

If it doesnt work you can send it to Sigma to be rechipped for free (but you will probably have to pay for shipping) I think that if you are buying a NEW lens that is supposed to AF, then it should and you shouldnt have to pay to ship it, to get it to work (my personal opinion)
