Well, trust Sigma, but the 300mm f/2.8 lens had calibration problems! Basically it focused a few centimetres further than when it claimed to have the focus locked on! See some test shots I did here: http://photo.net/photodb/folder?folder_id=889406
So I sent it off to Sigma a few weeks ago and will hopefully have it back next week :-)

It's really frustrating having spent all that money on a basically brand new lens to have it not work! So anyway, in the mean-time I'm using my Sigma 180mm with a 1.4x converter :-)

Thanks for the critique,
