Canon 70d with sigma 30mm Art

Hi,

I'm having serious problems here. My Canon 70d takes forever to focus with my Sigma 30mm Art when using live view. Tested every setting. Even my Canon 50 1.8 performs way better!

The thing is... live view autofocus is really fast and accurate which allows me to explore some weird angles, self-portraits, remote shooting using my iPhone or iPad, stealth shooting, etc...

Is this a known issue? Fixable via firmware? Any ideas, solutions, thoughts, anything?

I don't know if I should keep the lens or sell it and get a Canon 35 f2 IS, with great sadness since I really like working with the Sigma.

Thanks in advance.

José
