    That's too bad, Piotr.
    But how bad is it ? Is it inaccurate ? Or it won't lock ? Hunting ?

    TIA

    With lens I bought also the Sigma Dock. First attempt to calibration was a failure. After some experiment (I cannot find any reliable tutorials) I got quite simple methodology: First In body calibration @2m (where Sigma don't have any calibration point) then "infinity" then closer target. After full process, second iteration of calibration as all calibration points are connected somehow. So as K5 have very very uneven AF, it is working event more uneven with this lens. It is "kelvin" related issue but is not so simple. So it is not hunting but mostly you will get FF or BF. You make no change in setting, take off lens put it back and it work . So It is not for wedding photography (not with K5). But for show photography it is great .
    So I'm feeling obliged to put some photo.
    All photos will be from my beloved K5 from Kromer Festival. I was a producer of that event.
    Full photo-reportage is here

    With SIGMA 18-35 Paul O'dette, this photo was perfect example of problem I've made is in focus at the fifth approach



    But I like to use quite unusual lenses at event photography. Manual lenses
    Mirror Tokina 500mm f/8 is my favourite when I like to make some closer detail from far far away (750mm)
    With SR from old pentax it work well @1/160s hand held


    but with tripod and pre focusing and mirror lockup work even better


    I bought for about 30$ Hoya 200m f3.5 as I look for small (smaller than 18-35) tele lens.
    It is quite great lens: with stable target work well @1/15s



    So now I'm waiting what pentax/ricoh will do With sigma 18-35 FF is not so tempting as it was
