Has anyone in the UK had problems when sending a lens to Sigma for repair? I Sent my 135-400mm back on the 18th of February 2008 for tightening up as it kept expanding and crashing down when I had the camera on a strap around my neck.

Before I sent it back I asked them how long it would take and they said two to three weeks, they must have very long weeks in their part of England! I am hopeful of getting it back before I go on holiday to Vancouver Island in July 2008.

Just beware and if you have to send them a lens, make sure you will get it back within the time they speculate. The lens is excellent but their technical side needs a kick up the whats it!!!
