That was how I felt with the erratic and occasionally brilliant old model Sigma 50mm f/1.4.I say Sigmas AF in the new lenses is pretty good for the money....If I can't trust it, it's worthless.
My two copies got used for some personal work, endless testing but simply couldn't be trusted for client work. Therefore ultimately worthless.
I truly hope Sigma finds an AF fix for the new lenses deliverable via firmware. The optics are clearly awesome, but without dependable AF they're a commercial no-go.
I can totaly sign this!
the AF is the main thing and it need to work to 85-95% perfect...(for lens > 800€/1000$) I think..
