62 to repair my 18-125mm OS HSM (Canon fit)

About 30 years ago I bought a 70-200 Sigma zoom for my Canon A1. In those days no zoom had the image quality of a prime lens but it was worth it for the novelty/laziness factor. It was probably "almost" as good as a Canon zoom of that era.

More recently, I have had the following Sigma lenses that I use on my Nikon dSLRs:

8mm
10-20mm
30mm f/1.4
18-200mm OS
150-500mm OS

Quite honestly, I have never had the slightest whiff of trouble with any of them, despite subjecting them to the usual amount of abuse. I would hesitate to insist that they match the quality of their Nikon or Canon equivalents but, certainly for on-screen viewing or for prints up to A3+, there is no discernible difference.

Sigma said they would honour the warranty on my 10-20mm (Pictures not very sharp). It's about 1 month outside the 3 years. I never signed up for the extended warranty, just showed them the recipt.


Mind you they still have the lens and I don't have it back yet - so they could change their mind.
