    My 105mm EX is sickly. It makes a grating sound for about 4 seconds when the Minolta 700SI to which it is attached is switched on or off. My other lenses do not have this problem.
    Sigma want a lot of money to look at the problem
    Can anyone advise the name and address/web site/email of a comptent lens repairer in the UK cheaper but as good as Sigma?
    Thanks

    Jeff :sad:

    Your best bet is the manufacture, you have to remember you get what you pay for, unfortunately in this day and age, sometimes, it is less expensive to purchase a new one than it is to have something repaired..

    Good luck
