Camera works the same with and without the foil.
Camera and Sigma 24-70 were purchased used 1 year ago.
Camera was working ok but Sigma has been service for a loose front assembly and it came back with a problem with the aperture ring, has been serviced again... good thing it's an EX under warranty.

The 17-70mm was purchase 1 year ago and never had any issues. This lens was tested on a MZ-M 35mm and a brand new K20d and it works fine.

Anyhow, i already started shopping for a used K10d or K20d body. I would love a new K7.... but $$$$$$$
If the 24-70 has had work done and came back with the problem, then this suggests it is partly the lens,. you should at least contact sigma. You could be facing 2 problems in that case.

New K20D :-)

Just purchased a 1 year old K20D from the local Kijiji ads. Under warranty until December with a very low shutter of 261... including my tests shot before buying. Info checked using PhotoME. I even have the invoice :-)

My Sigma 17-70mm works great now. The 24-70mm will go back to service... it works on the K20D, but the "A" setting on the aperture ring is a bit loose.

I will keep the K10D as it is , since it works most of the time. I took it to the Car Show in Montreal yesterday and it worked fine with my 12-24mm.

And now, if i want a friend for a photo afternoon, i have an extra camera :-)
