I bought a used late model (smooth finish) sigma 30mm f1.4 lens.
Worked fine in MF mode (using live view at least) but not in AF mode (including Focus confirmation in MF mode)
usuable on my 7D at +18 MFA, unusable on my 600D for stills.
Submitted to supplier for repair 3 weeks ago, told today that it will be another 3 weeks before Sigma will look at it.
Have been offered a replacement used lens, but older version (fuzzy finish)
Do I accept the older lens (potentially as old as 2005) which may have the same AF issue?
Do I wait and hope Sigma fix the lens I bought? (was in very nice condition with box, hood etc)
It's a lens I am quite keen to have in my kitbag and got it at a good price (thankfully with guarantee)
What would you do between these two options? Wait for the newer lens to be fixed, or take a (hopefully working) older copy of the lens instead?
N.B. Buying a 1DX and 35 f1.4L is not an option, so please don't be that guy.
