FWIW, recently my (out of warranty) Sigma 70-200 HSM II mount flange was also quickly and efficiently modified by the local Australian Sigma distributor.

The required parts now seem to be widely available for all the Sigma lenses that need to be turned into 'non-scratchers'.

My Sigma 70-200 HSM II came back from servicing at Sigma Europe after 6 weeks.
They updated my firmware what I asked them to do.
Lens ID is not numeric anymore (8 255 or 8 16) and it has full description: Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II
They changed my mount what I asked them NOT to do.
All for free.
Because of that I have problem with autofocusing now.
Adjustment is on -10 and autofocus is not good enough.
At least it works now but it will need another servicing.
So it won't be free at the end.
I hate Sigma.

To clarify they swapped the mount due to the K-1 compatibility (scratching the camera) but you had asked they leave it alone? I would push hard for them to not charge then if you specified do not alter and they did anyway.
