Me too! I 've just picked up an 'as new' copy (new - returned by purchaser, sent back to Sigma for something to be fixed - full warrenty) for 450 - arrived yesterday.

Patience, patience. If the sun shines this week-end and I develop the muscles in my right arm to pick the thing up then who knows!

Sigma 100-300 sample

Here is a sample and some 100% crops, if I did it right. Nothing special, no sunshine here either.
SR on
1/250 second

Center crop:

Edge crop:

Even wide open with cloudy sky in the background, there is no purple fringing at all.
