Re: Sigma 17-50 EX OS HSM (Nikon) w/ defective AF: Repair or Refund???

It's interesting to read this post - I bought the same lens second hand on Monday - it arrived tuesday and exactly the same problem. It's been sent back and I await another second hand one (from the same company) to arrive tomorrow.

I did ask them to try it out on a D7000 (as I have one). They were able to do this and confirm that it was problem free.

I've also read that it's a chip/bios issue and can easily be fixed by Sigma - it's a shame that people don't get this done before selling them - it only serves to increase returns and complaints.

Like many though - the lens is ideal for what I need so will persist as I only hear good things from those who have a good one! The combination of 2.8 and OS is exactly what I need for low light video.
