A new rumor indicates some good and bad news for Sigma lovers. The bad news is that there may be a recall on Nikon mount Sigma 150-600mm Sports lenses that will cause a delay in shipping for about two months. The good news, this was apparently caught before the items hit the store.
According to the report over on Photo Rumors, Sigma Corporate has pulled back all units that are currently in transit due to a defect that was discovered in the first batch of lenses. There is no information about what the defect is, or if users that already have the Nikon mount version should send their lens in for service.
The odd part about this is that I have heard 0 complaints about the lens, in any mount. In fact, the comment section of Photo Rumors already has several people curious about the recall because they have the Nikon mount version and it works fine in their eyes.
The rumor report goes on to say that it will be 45-60 days before the Nikon mount version of the lens will begin shipping again. It will be interesting to see if Sigma needs to pull back units from customers as well, and if we will learn any more about this issue (if there is indeed an issue).
*Update: This rumor appears to have been debunked. Get more details here, over at Sigma Rumors. *
