Auto focusing issue affects limited number of Sigma telezoom lenses

Couldnt find this in any other thread apologise if i missed it by others.

Took my Sigma 150-500mm lens on holiday recently and whilst away started experiencing autofocus problems (hunting). if i switched camera of and on again it worked for a few seconds then went in hunting mode again. When i returned i did a little search and found this link;

Sigma Imaging (UK) Ltd

Looked up which products it affected and low and behold my lens is one of them, so Sigma picked up yetserday with a 2 week turn around for repair (Hopefully).

It was mentioned in News Sigma issue autofocus defect alert

No probs with a re-mention as there may be others who haven't seen it - just sorry it affected your lens (mine, I'm glad, to say pre-dated the issue! )
