I wonder how much melamine it contains?

That's right. Sigma today produces some wonderful lenses, but still problems with autofocus above average. If Sigma resolve this, will bury its bad reputation in the past.After a few days testing Sigma 50mm Art, I can say that is the only lens (except Zeiss Otus) that is truly sharp at maximum aperture. I hear some people complaining about problems with autofocus, but frankly, any lens from any manufacturer is subject to certain units outside the calibration standard.aj....I had to send my first lens back to B&H Photo....it focused all over the place...it just could not hit the mark consistently at f/1.4....I attempted to adjust it with my dock...and just said..."screw this, I am doing someone else's work here!"...LOL! It was totally wacked. So I did find that there is some legitimacy to the complaints from users, but instead of making 200 posts on 7 different forums ( ) I just just called up B&H..told them about the problem, which they were well versed on, (they are the best!) and they sent me another one. This second lens just needed a slight adjustment with my Sigma Lens Dock (fine tuning) and it just seems to hit the mark all the time at any focal distance.

Just look at the roundness of that aperture and tell me you wouldn't die for one like it in a modern lens.
Young people? Learning? Don't get me started. LOL!!!
What do the young people learn today?
Back, when I was young...
I went today and they had the 150-600 available too test at the canon part of their lenses. I didn't look if it was the sport or contemporary. But I guess it was the sports.
I guess I was talking to the wrong person.
I have had nothing but problems with the Peak product. I bought it at Image USA in Phoenix. Great demo. I told them that I'm a photojournalist and carry heavy equipment (5dm3 with 70-200mm lens). I carry two cameras. This looked like a great product. As I found out, it probably works for light cameras but as I explained to them my equipment was heavy and I have to run a lot.
I've complained a few times and all I get told is to keep working with it. It nearly 9 mths later and I still get the same jamming, and difficulty getting the camera into the unit.
Cotton Carrier is a dream. I just purchased two holsters that fit on a belt. They are a dream. They do everything I wanted. They are fast, don't jam and designed for what I do. The cameras lock into place. No moving parts. Easy to use.
+1 for the RRS-plate, it has a much lower profile so it's great for support, and at least for me, is way more comfortable than holding with no foot.
Am I the only one that thinks making the tripod foot non-removable almost totally defeats the purpose of this lens, which is to make it very light and easily handholdable? If I were in the market for a lens like this, this one simple thing would be a show-stopper for me. I keep the tripod ring off my 70-200/2.8 and 100-400L unless I'm actually using it on a tripod for exactly this reason - handholding comfort. It even looks really uncomfortable to hold in the video with the foot in his palm.
