I've been told things by dealers in the past that were just plain untrue. It's not just car dealers that try to pull the wool over our eyes. Sorry, but I'll never believe that Nikon make Sigma lenses or parts for them, no matter how many people "in the know" say otherwise. Besides, Sigma make no secret about the locations of their lens making factories.

its more likely that sigma makes the innards of your nikon lenses than the opposite.. it is no secret that the major manufacturers contract out to companies such as tamron, sigma, etc for some of the inner workings of their lenses..
