I was about to send mine in when I discovered there is NO insurance at all with the shipping provided by Canon!

My son has decided he does'nt want have his face on cam AT ALL. But I managed to get a couple today. Here's one shot with the 24-70. Wanted a really punchy light. One 580 in a 60x60 cm softer.



I like it Viggo!

Thanks a lot!

Eml58, that shot with the fire is simply NatGeo quality, truly one of the best nature shots I've seen in years.

Care to share the story behind?

Shot with the 24-70 mk2, it's obviously through glass, so some reflections, but it's still pretty sharp through thick glass. And I worry about filters, lol.

Mine is +1 at both ends, and it was 0 at 35 and 50, and real world shots confirms this as well.

Mine is 2012 edition (with the old style lens cap) and it is much more consistent with sharp results than the 2013 I exchanged due the infamous clicking noise with the zoom ring.

Up close the 24-70 mk2 is noticeably softer than at a meter or more.

Is it build like a squeaky box of yoghurt, or is it metal now? It looks cool enough.

Thanks to everyone who posted their experience with the repair here. It seems it will go without a hitch. Mine is shipping on Monday.

If the sensor came back with dust and hairs I would clean it myself, it was the oil that was the concern.

Too late!  Look what I bought today... my first non Canon.

Just out of curiosity, how does the build quality feel? Is it a solid build like a Canon lens? How does the focus ring feel? (Just interested in knowing how a modern Sigma lens compares in the less-talked-about aspects of lenses...)

I hate everything that's not Canon and I felt the Siggy 35 was VERY well built, beautiful focusing ring and a bing chunky heavy lens that feels as it will take pretty much any abuse except for water .

I almost felt it was a bit too heavy for a 35 though.

Got mines back today, receipt says mirror box modification and repaired faulty/damaged parts lube hook.I gave it a good run at 12fps with no issues sensors spotless :-)

Nice! That's great news! Glad it worked out for you. Mine is going in Monday and I'll update my experience here.

I get mines back tomorrow :-) i asked them what happened they told me the modification was complete so lets hope it comes back with a clean sensor and still properly weather sealed.

I would really appreciate if you would share any findings regarding oil drops on the sensor, and hopefully it's clean. I'm sending mine in on monday, so I can get it back between weekends.

All of you that is raving on about the super-slowmo AF'd Sigma like it's the end all lens, there is a thread or ten for the people who love it here, please let me enjoy every little word that's rumor and fact about the 35 L II that I've been waiting for for the last 8 years  ;)

I do not care what it costs, because if it's anywhere near as much better than the 35 L as the recent upgrades from Canon (70-200, 24-70, TS-E24, all the super teles and so on) it will eat all other primes for breakfast.

I think it will be by far the fastest and best focusing prime under 200mm, and yes I realize that includes the 135.

I can't wait!  ;D

I called my local service shop today and asked if they have started taking them in or if it's only in the US still, and he said, just send it in, will fix them as we get them now.

So for anyone who wants it fixed, send an email, they might be on it in your country as well.

It's very seldom farther away than and arms reach sitting in stdby. Pretty much never ever more than 6-7 seconds away at all times.

Well, it's a bit hard to be certain since I'm viewing on my iPhone, but it looks like the first one 'hit' better on the play tent opening.  Not sure if you're aware, but the actual AF points are larger that the little box that represents them in the VF.  So, you could put the box on his face, but the real AF point extends up outside the box and catches the rolled up 'door' of the tent, and that what it locks onto.

Yeah, that image wasn't the best example I guess. I'm aware of the point being larger, but this issue has appeared lately, and can happen with any subject... I can shoot a checkerboard in bright light and it would suddenly be oof.

I guess I'll try to send my camera in if people get them back without splattering, and see if that solves the problem.

I saw the issue with the "Af Consistency" test in Focal also. Out of 20 points I had two that were completely off and the other between 2700 and 2670, for example. And that hasn't happened before.
