Hello glacerda:  I lost mine a few years ago and got a replacement from Sigma USA.  Have you tried Sigma UK?

Yes, I have. Sigma has a policy of only dealing with items from the ART generation.

I wanted to send it for maintenance and to buy the missing part. No luck.

Also dropped a SD14 and 17-70m non-OS and they declined to fix them; these items are too old, apparently.  I am very disappointed.

That's the one main problem with buying anything from Sigma, if it's a few years old forget about it being repairable. In that sense they are definitely not a professional camera company.

glacerda,

I dropped my old SD14 one time causing the focus screen to pop out of it on to the mirror. That is easy enough to put back in place. It's still working perfectly used now for IR photos only.

The 18-50mm f2.8 broke in two & at that time was fixed at the local Sigma agent here. It's still going well on my SD15 which use occasionally when large files are not needed.  Unfortunately they are gone now & Sigma Benelux is the Sigma supplier since January this year. So no more local support that I can walk into.:-(

Yes, if you can't get the original it will work, not the best, but it works.

Even the Big "Pro Companies" can/won't repair a lot of their discontinued products. Sigma is a small company, but they'll repair or replace what they can. It's the new business model, don't repair or replace sell a new product. Sony is terrible about this.

Did you try Sigma Japan, or Sigma USA ?

Good Luck

Theoretically I can try, my wife travels to Japan almost every year, except 2020 for obvious reasons, to visit her parents. A lot of my equipment was bought in Japan at a really nice small shop in Osaka.  I have not been to the shop for over a decade. I do have all the lens I need.

I will not bother with USA as they have refused to sell items to Europe; see another thread about buying sensor filter.

I will buy this item and try an original in Japan later.
