Because it appears that it's focused a bit forward of the zero line.

Sigma is reported to have some bad QC issues. Some lenses are spot on, some lenses front/back focus.

I can't really say whether or not this is true from my experience because I've only one Sigma lens. Personally though, if you buy used, it shouldn't be a problem since most people on POTN sell lenses that have been calibrated already or without any issues out of the box.

I bought new (I received a gift card and used that towards it)... if I take it out and have problems with it (apparently front/back focusing, etc) would a calibration be covered under the warranty? Heh, I realize R3's probably not the best person to ask about this since his Sigma is his first, but why not, I like it over here tonite better than POTN, lol

That was a problem for me, personally. I'm just too impatient to wait for them to finish calibrating my lens

Yea, I'm probably not the best person to ask. I do love my 30mm though. Prefer it much more to my 28mm. Which Sigma lens did you get? Your sig isn't updated

And yea, I love the camera talk here more than POTN.

POTN is weird... FM is good, and DPreview is just wrong.
