    So I purchased A lens from Ebay (<- mind you I hate Ebay there's allot of scams on there!) anyway I receive the lens this morning:wink: I'm like a kid in a candy store!!! I run and grab my camera slap on the new lens and run outside (still in my pj's) "Click" nothing happened!!!:confused: i take the lens off double check my settings. "Click" Nothing again!!!:( I look at the screen it says no lens. now I'm ticked off!:grumpy: this lens was advertised to work on my camera. I decided to try it on 4 other cameras I have since the lenses are all interchangeable between them Still nothing!:grumpy::x I e-mail the seller telling him what happened. In the mean time (while waiting for his response i do a Google search) come to find out old Sigma lenses need a chip upgrade to work on a newer slr.Hmmm...:er: so I look up sigma and get there #. after talking with the customer service rep I find out- - They will trade in old lenses for new ones!!!;) Well for my lens it was only $100 to send in my old lens and get a brand new one with a warranty. Not bad considering it cost $300.00 by itself. so i'm still a little ticked off and was snooping around and found out that the seller I bought the lens from had bought it from another seller on ebay. well Now I'm furious!!!:madmad::madmad:Here this guy got screwed and decided to screw someone else!!!"What a A-s!!!" I say. So anyway I didn't pay that much for the lens so I figured it would cost me more time and money to fight this and mail it back to this guy, so I sent it out 2 Sigma. Well my luck seemed to do a 100% turnaround just now as the guy e-mails me and says he will give me a 100% refund (even shipping!!!)and i can keep the lens! ! !:)So I pretty much just bought a brand new $300.00 lens for $100 not a bad deal huh?:lmao::lol:

    sheesh dude... you've got issues...

    1 - So he bought the lens... he wasn't happy.. .resold it. You've got a problem with that? Maybe the Sigma works with his "older" camera? I purchased a Leica summicron which ended up being the wrong version than I realized. I just resold it.. guess I"m screwing someone else?? You make no sense.

    2 - So he offered you a 100% refund. And you still furious?

    3 - You still made out like a bandit in the deal.. and you find it necessary to start a thread here?

    yes.. you need a drink.

    She's Happy Hour. Quit killin her buzz, man...she's chillin.

    I must say...I was amused.

    It would have been nice for him to mention it was the older version. But very good of him to give you a refund and for Sigma to replace their lens. You made out like a bandit.

    I could not believe everything that happened today. he claims he knows nothing about cameras or lenses. which i actually believe. I looked at the old post from the guy he bought it from and it said the same thing that his said. anywhoo the whole reason i posted this b4 the Circus act came in . was to let everyone know Sigma Does trade in lenses working or broken. i thought It would be a bit of useful info for any noobs or old timers that have some layin around. :headbang:
