Sigma Lens Repair

Joe Dempsey , Jun 09, 2008; 10:52 a.m.

I managed to let my Sigma 10-20 roll out of my pickup door and hit the carport floor.The glass is OK, but there was apparently some internal damage. Can anyone recommend a repair facility. Found several by Googling, but know nothing else about them. TIA, Joe

Damn, that's a shame.

Have you seen this page?

Thanks Matt. The lens has served me well and I discovered that it does not bounce, The link you sent is perfect! Thanks! Joe

Yo, Matt and/or Joe: What's that page? It comes up as "page not found" now.
I have the same problem Joe had (hopefully that's past-tense now?), my 18-200mm dropped out of my pickup front door. Or, you could say that I sort of ejected it by yanking over my jacket, not remembering that's where I'd put the lens! :(
It's only the mount that is ever-so-slightly out of shape; it will squeeze into my focal-length doubler, but I don't want to put that sort of pressure on the camera.
Any help you can offer would be appreciated!

John, I just tried the link and it did not work. As I recall, the company had two offices one somewhere in Arizona and one in Atlanta. I would up sending the lens to the Arizona location. They are not a part of sigma, but contract with sigma to provide repair service. I'll do a bit more research and see if I can find the company for you.
