I trust sigma will sort it out
I'd be interested to find out what specifically was wrong with your copy though

I doubt its software otherwise everyone would have these problems

I'm beginning to suspect internal connections like (flex)cables, connectors etc. This could very easily give erratic behaviour. Hmmm; come to think of it, ESD damage can sometimes also give very odd behaviour.
I would also be interested in knowing the root cause of these problems that Viggo and Eldar has.

Could be....wickidwombat is located in China, less static and his lens is still solid.

Well said ...I think more than a few are over-tweaked!  8)
I am looking forward to Dustin Abbott's  review/comparison of both Sigma 50's...hope he got the Sigma Dock,too as I would like to hear what he has to say about that as well. His take is reliable, experienced, real-world and relevant. 
No measurbating.

It's sad to hear Viggo and Eldar having some problem with AF. I truely appreciated all the feedbacks and photos they have to offer.

I wonder what would I do if I'm in Viggo's situation? Do nothing and hope for better result?

Thanks for sharing. Those corners look real good

Well Jens, That looks about what mine produced to begin with. I was very taken with the lens. But after a while ... it all changed. I hope for your sake that it continues to produce good results and I´m waiting to hear how it goes.

What do you mean? Did you do any firmware update? or any AFMA yourself?

I'm little... ??? ??? ???
There is only one firmware version to choose from, the one it came with.

Yes I have had it through FoCal and a manual Lens Align. The problem is that the AF is unstable. One shot front focus, next shot back focus, third shot is dead on etc. FoCal was unable to determine the AFMA factor. The chart looked like it had been hit by a shot gun. That´s why I did a manual job with my Lens Align setup. It was depressing to see how much focus varied from one shot to the other.

I posted some images a couple of pages back on this thread.

Comment: Sorry; The images are on the other Sigma thread ...

I thought you mentioned AF on your 50mm ART is much better over 35mm ART? So, you and Viggo are not happy with AF? I wonder how is wickidwombat's copy doing...

It WAS awesome, calibrated and hit perfect. I stayed indoors for a few days test shooting, cuz I was sick. But when I went out nothing hit, absolutely all over the place. I dialed in a +12(!!) to my already +17 in the lens via docking, then it hit again, redid everything and it looked perfect, few more days and it was VERY unstable again! So after four times of that cr@p I sent it to a repair shop. So done with that AF .. Hopefully they can do something with although I doubt they have any spare lenses to swap with, I doubt it's any different and I doubt they have parts to replace with that's any different.

Issues like this make me think twice now.

Look forward to hear your update.

I have signed up at Nikon rumors (felt almost like a criminal  :P) and posted a question there, to check if they have similar experiences. Apparently very few Nikon versions have been delivered, so the only answer I have so far is that there is none. I will follow up though.

All I can say is......

Couple of shots inside Peter's Church in Rome. Both shot with the 17-40.

Just behind St.Peter's grave, what an astonishing place...



An awesome statue inside the church.



Great shot Viggo  ;)

More options...Uhmmmmm, sounds good to me

Just like the big brother 24-70 II, the new 16-35 f4 IS MTF charts look awesome.

My 16-35 II & 50L are on ebay.

I'll hold off until I see some actual reviews of the 16-35 F4 but I suspect I'll be joining you in putting my 16-35 II on ebay as well...  (Especially since I take alot of video with that lens too)

Why trade in the 16-35 f/2.8 for the f/4.0? Wouldn't you guys prefer the faster aperture?

DOF, sharpness and of course 4stop IS.

I had my heart to set on a Canon version of the Nikon 14-24mm but I'm willing to take a crack at this one!! I'll wait for the reviews.  ;) :)
I'm with you, but I took the leap and pre-ordered this morning.  I'm going to sell of my 16-35 II and hope that the new lens is as good in person as it looks on paper :)
