Just had a reply finally. Bad news:

"Front focusing cannot be cured on this lens. It is over 10 years old, out of the service programme and can no longer be repaired."

I am a bit disappointed by their reply. I would not expect such a work to require specific spare parts. I know that this is an old lens but expected them to at least look at it and see whether they could do anything...

That's too bad.
Why did I expect nothing more (or is it less?) from them :roll:

Hello!
Get short experience with Sigma APO TELE MACRO 300mm F4 today. Seems I had front focus issue on my Nikon D50 too. But my question is about Sigma APO TELE MACRO 400mm F5.6. Does it have similar problem?
I read at
http://www.photomatter.com/Reviews/NikonD300b.html
that AF fine tune value 13 on D300 improve AF accuracy of Sigma APO TELE MACRO 400mm F5.6.
Do you have any ideas about this?

Hello Storch, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!

Sorry for the late reply. I've tested the 400/5.6 Apo macro here and found not the same probs as with the 300/4.0: at least I have a copy that works without AF fine-tune.
If you have any further questions regarding the 400/5.6 continue in that thread (or PM me).
