How common are focus problems with Canon 6d and third party lenses?

I rented a Canon 6D as a trial to determine if I wanted to buy one.  My canon lens worked great, but both of my Sigma lenses had intermittent problems with focusing --- either continually searching and then finally locking onto focus, or making a whirring noise and not being able to focus at all. Several times I had to turn the camera off in order to get the Sigmas to work properly, for a short time.   These lenses are not EF-S lenses.  I have had no problems with either Sigma lens on my T2i.

Is this focus problem a common occurrence with the 6D and third party lenses?
