Re: 50mm Sigma art Nightmare

Generally I think the whole "bad copy" lens thing is overblown, however and this perhaps is its own version of that, know of two photographers who had issues with Art series lens Quality Control. So I would say that in my own experience as a photo professor, seeing lots of students and fellow faculty purchase a range of lenses, that it does seem to happen more than with Nikkor lenses. But again this is by no mean a scientific study, perhaps someone like LensRental who buy and handle a lot of them would be a more  accurate gauge of this issue. Personally, I know I would not buy one for that reason, I know too many people who have had issues.
