I'm just telling about my experiences with digital equipment. So far for Canon and Sigma:

Canon items with minor or major problems:
1Ds-II, 5D-II, 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1, 85mm f/1.2, 135mm f/2, 200mm f/1.8

Canon items without any problems:
50mm f/1.8 Mk. I - works like a charm! Lovely little lens.

Sigma lenses with minor problems:
20mm f/1.8

Sigma lenses without any problems:
15mm f/2.8 fisheye, 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6, 28mm f/1.8, 70mm f/2.8 macro, 100-300 f/4

No major Sigma problems.

So it is not just a single defective product. Not the greatest statistics for Canon...

My old Canon FD based equipment from the 1980'es was much better (F1-new + various lenses), before that I had Konica, which was even better than Canon, never any problems.
