When testing for left AF issue, I discovered that this lens doesn't focus in Live View. It is a lens bought about 3 years ago.

My two other Sigma (150mm f/2.8 bought 2 years ago, 85mm f/1.4 bought one month ago work properly). All my Nikon lenses work properly as well.

I also noticed that with this 50mm lens, my D800 doesn't show the left AF issue while it does with my Nikon 28mm f/1.8.

Any idea ?
