Looks like Sigma will have to deal with AF reports first and check this before release of the 85mm f/1.4 Art. This is not good advertisement for Sigma and their products.
My 50mm f/1.4 Art does not have AF problems. I am extremely happy with my copy.

Did you order yours on Day 1?

I pre-ordered mine about half a month ago and B&H sent me an email a few days ago basically saying "We don't have anything to ship to you but we haven't forgotten that we've charged you.."

Actually I did not order mine. There was one shop in the Netherlands that received one copy. And I was the first to get it about 3 weeks ago. I was really Lucky to get it early. Also my copy works great and I am very pleased with the results.

If Canon is having "year of the lens", what is Sigma having? They are really on a roll!! :)

Technically Cannon never claimed it was the Year of the Canon Lens... just that it would be the Year of the Lens.   ;D

no one has problems with AF of this lens except the one that has a 1D series, like me

If Sigma has a lens focusing problem, why have they not acknowledged it? I've seen nothing more than a couple people on a forum and one guy who evaluated one copy of the lens. If this is widespread, wouldn't Roger at Lens Rentals have said something about it?

Perhaps it's more like the year of some folks who are green with envy.

Yeah, I've found that the focus on the 5D3 is really excellent with the new sigma, but unfortunately pretty bad with the 1D3 and 1Ds3.
