Sigma UC-II 70-210 AF issue

Hi all,

I have a Sigma 70-210 UC-II lens that has an odd 'Feature'. I know the lens is not very good and this exercise is more for information than trying to get real use out of it.

So, here is the issue. On my K-3 II it focuses just fine. Quick and snappy. No issue. However, on every other AF body I have (K-3, K-7, K10D, *istD, Z-1P, PZ-1, PZ-20) it will not focus. Not that it hunts around, or that focus is not accurate, it won't even attempt to focus. Like it was a manual focus lens. Just dead. Not even a little bzzzt from the AF motor. Nada.

Anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

No clues, eh?

Interesting thing is that when attached to other AF bodies, they do not get the proper lens information. None of it. It is a though none of the contacts were connecting. However, that's not the case. Really odd.
