    Nothing new. We knew about this problem with (some) Sigma lenses more than 10 years ago.

    I am continuing to use my 10-20mm until it becomes impractical to do so (e.g. the distance markings can't be seen, and I don't come up with a good solution to keep them where they are).

    For my 18-55mm Sigma the MF/AF switch is damaged because it once dropped to the floor.

    It could auto focus but couldn't manual focus which I used all the time.

    I stuck a part of toothpick to hold the MF/AF switch in position. It seemed to be working fine. I have been using it this way for more than 1/2 a year.

    Peel it totally naked and put on some nice carbon gaffer tape?
