sigma 150-500 autofocus stopped working

23 Jan 2013 6:18PM
Can anyone tell me how much it will cost to have the motor replaced . have checked the number and it isn't one of the lenses that has been recalled. use it on a d800. other lenses work fine. it is out of guarantee and I suspect it's a grey import even though I bought it from a dealer in England.
Thanks in advance.

give sigma uk a ring they are easy to talk to and carry out the work quick.

I agree with the contact sigma route I have used them in the past and they were very helpful and repairs were reasonable.

Thanks all. @lawbert. Lens came before camera. And after buying camera can't afford another lens. But thanks for the thought and advice. Wink

Servicing costs for each lense category are posted on their web site!! This should give you some idea of cost!!
