Has anyone tried this lens on a D800, on my camera it does not auto focus with the Bigma on but it does on a D300, curious if something wrong with camera/lens or just the way it is.

I know certain sigma lens/nikon body combos are noted to not work well together...the d7000 and sigm 20mm 1.8 comes to mind....i think the issues appear when you combine an older sigma lens, with a newer nikon body...

If your Sigma is an older lens, it probably needs to be re-chipped by Sigma. My d7000 won't work properly with any of my Sigma lenses, no AF in live view and poor focus in PDAF.

My 50-500 OS works very well on my D800. It's been a great travel lens for me.

My sigma 70-200 works fine with my d700 n d7k. Never had issues.

Not exactly my experience. On the D7000 NONE of my Sigma lenses work in live view, ALL of them work fine in PDAF. This includes a 150-500.
