I got mine a week ago.  It arrived with front focusing issue.. have to adjust with +13 focus alignment in my Canon 5D mk 3.

Hey Daniel,

Have you noticed any difference with you +13 focus alignment when shot in different lighting than from when you calibrated?  I have tried four Sigma 35mm lenses and all needed significant AF adjustments but when the light (WB) changed the results were unreliable.  I really wanted the Sigma to work but I was forced to buy the Canon 35L and forever I will know that I paid more for an optically inferior lens, but for me focus always takes top priority.

Focus is constant in different lighting.  I only time I noticed that focus is not constant is if I set to Single-point Spot AF when testing on tripod with cable shutter release.  However all other AF selection are ok, even Single-point AF.
