Re: Sigma 50-500 problem

Just called them again.

I was told the repair was finished yesterday and the lens was shipped to me yesterday even though I told them I would pick it up.

See how it is when I get it back.

Re: Sigma 50-500 problem

You lucky boy Andy!

At least one of us has got some 'closure'

My other half tried to get a progress update today - they weren't answering the phone

I hope we can see some pics with your rejuvinated Bigma very soon!

Re: Sigma 50-500 problem

How's it going with the lens Andy?

I've heard today that my camera will be back with me on Friday !

I don't know what my husband said to them, but they are apparently (according to him) replacing the lens.

Worryingly, they have said that they tried out my camera with an Olympus lens they have, and have 'noticed' that there seems to be some focus problems at the edge of the image. They recommend I get the camera checked out when I get it back.

I don't think I can take any more - that's a brand new camera, which I've hardly used ! We'll see when I get it all back - but at least it is on it's way, then I can see for myself. I'm not convinced by this, but need to see it for myself.

Hi Thea

I did not take the lens out today as I had a meeting to go to this afternoon and did not want to lug it across London.
I have in the bag with the E3 ready for tomorrow.

Good news you will finally get yous back,be interested to see if it a new lens.I did check the serial number in case they had sent me yours instead.Anything is possible.
Sigma put the the wrong post code on mine hence why it took UPS an extra day to find me.
Strange what they said about the camera,I suppose the other lens could have been mine.
Dont worry about it until you have tested it yourself.

I'll do a test tomorrow lunch time weather permiting and try and get out over the weekend for some proper shots.

Re: Sigma 50-500 problem

Hello Andy

Got my (replacement) lens and camera back today (tonight actually ).

Doubt if I'll be able to have a proper test of it all just yet (short days, rain and more rain if you see what I mean), but I'll post some pics when I do.

Let's hope it's the end of the Sigma saga!

Hi Thea

Glad you've got it even though its a new one.

Yes the weather forcast looks dull and overcast all week

Looking forward to seeing some results when you do get out.

It must have been hard not having the E3 as well but its given you time to play with the E1

Lets hope we can now close this thread.
