    they said that it was repaired and they did a bunch of shit to it (it's supposed to be here today - not exactly sure what they did, but i will know soon), and if "that doesn't solve the problem, then please send in the body".

    is that a usual comment when they send things back from repair? or, are they saying "we adjusted it, but it's pretty much the same - might be your camera body"

    :dunno:

    Sounds like the latter. Or at least, that statement would probably have me thinking the same thing.

    its the standard drivel they say to cover their ass.

    thats why Sigma service > Canon service.

    whats fucked up is unless you are a CPS member you get treated like shit from Canon. I was a member but now think its bullshit you have to pay for it. Buying all their high end gear wasnt enough

    what's so good about sigma service?

    how did they treat me like shit? they just got the lens on Monday, and i'm getting it back today. I think that's pretty impressive.

    $100/yr for their Gold program ... 2wk free rentals, and 2 free "check & clean" vouchers, plus 30% off repairs.

    kinda makes sense if you take a lot of pictures, doesn't it?

    okay, just got it back. this is what it says:

    We have examined the product according to your request, and it was found that the adjustment of the mechanical chassis was incorrect. Electrical adjustments were carried out on the mechanical chassis. Other electrical adjustments, inspection and cleaning and mechanical adjustment were carried out. ***If same problem occur please send us with BODY.

    nice engrish at the end there.

    not when it was a free service last year.

    we never had "rentals" before. It was a try before you buy program. And it used to be check and cleans were free for professional equipment, didnt need a voucher.

    I missed the beginning of this saga - what was the lens doing? (or not doing)
