Sigma Strikes Back

So it turns out my nice little $100 mistake is going to cost me more. Sigma was nice enough to repair my 24mm 1.8 but in the process they added the hidden feature of backfocus. So now I'm about 3/4 inch backfocused near the minimum focus range of the lens. This is exactly what I feared sending the lens to them in the first place. I would rather have bad bokeh than backfocus. So off to NY it goes (again).

Wednesday Update

So I got my Sigma EF 500's back from Sigma and they work great. I'll be trying them today at a company function.

Also it cost me $100 to get the 24mm repaired. Haven't it back yet but it should be here soon.

Lastly, I never heard back from the London police regarding my email. A couple folks asked me to post any response I got back but alas they never did.
