A99 Auto Focus Range Failure

I was afraid it was too good to be true.

It took a while to figure out what was going on. The focus is quick and nimble with my Sigma 500/4.5 APO EX DG but when I turn on the range limiter it just runs from one end to the other of the range I set without finding focus even if the whole range is selected. If I turn it off the focus works well again.

Auto focus Range works with my Sony 70-300G.

Add to this AF-D does not work with any of my lenses.
