I am looking for some help or suggestions,
I have a Sigma DG 70 x 300 lense and the AF stopped working in KNP, makes a whiring sound as if a gear is broken.

a) can anyone suggest where I can get it repaired in the Gauteng area?

b) will it be cheaper to buy a new lense?

Thanks

How old is the lens? they have a 2 year warranty.

Take it back to the shop you bought it at, the holding company for sigma in south africa is TudorTech and they are based in Cape Town and will most likely need to go there to be fixed.

Not sure what it would cost for the repair but it may just be easier to buy a new lense, they fairly cheap at the moment.

Thanks Timbo,

Actually bought the lense in Dubai! Will contact the local company and take it from there.
