Thanks for the feedback! :-)
I figured that it wasn't nearly as bad as the one poster was trying to claim, but I was curious to see if others had seen what I'm seeing. The vast majority of my Sigma glass is 8 years old, so it wasn't a huge surprise to me, when the issue with the d7k Live View came up on the lenses that I tested. I don't have any "new" Sigmas. My newest Sigma lens is either a 20mm or a 150, but both are well over a year old and I haven't tested them yet.
I didn't even know about the Live View issue. I was getting OOF images from my d7k & 100-300 f/4, when the lens was used at/near Infinity. So, I was going to test it, with several of my Nikkors, using Live View. That's when I discovered that LV wouldn't work with my Sigma long lenses.
All of my Sigmas work fine with the d3s, d700 and d300, including LV. They also worked fine on my d200's and d70's, but I haven't used those bodies in a while.
None of my Nikkors have an issue with LV on the d7k.
Eventually, I will test the suspect lenses on the d5100. At this point, I don't know if I have a wonky d7k or if it's just an issue with my old Siggys.
What do you mean that "LV wouldn't work"? What part of LV doesn't work? I have seen a few people mention autofocus, but you never said specifically what you mean by LV not working.
