No auto focus Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC APO OS HSM
1

So, after seven years, my Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC APO OS HSM seems to have lost its autofocus motor.  I was using it on my D500 today while photographing a parade, and it quit autofocusing.  I've enjoyed using it for the past seven years, and my dilemma now is whether or not to replace it with something comparable and suited for the D500 or repair it.

I plan on calling Sigma after the holidays to attempt to get a quick price for repairing it, but I thought I'd toss the questions out there for a quick answer:

1.  What might it cost to repair, if anyone knows.

2.  What would be a good replacement option for the D500.

Thanks in advance all!
