Notice to Canon 40D owners using Sigma's APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM or APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM for Canon fitting
2008.5.27

When the Canon 40D digital SLR is in AI Servo AF mode, and the APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM for Canon or APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM for Canon lenses are attached to the camera with the OS function switched ON, the number of continuous frames per second will decrease.

We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to our customers.
