    Lens (bought used on eBay and working when I got it a few months ago) failed
    recently. Neither my D70 or either of my N90's would acknowledge that the
    lens was a CPU-lens. Took it to Strauss PhotoTech [fortunately a local
    place for me] and was told that (a) the "rear lens mount had failed and
    needed to be replaced" and (b) they've "seen this a lot" with this lens.
    Has anyone else had similar bad lick with this Sigma lens -- or any other
    Sigma lens?

    If you can, try the lens on a Nikon F5 body and see if all is well.
    I've one and it has never been in need of service. (It is a
    second-party lens, and your N90 is not as new as a N90s would be. As
    for the D70 needing a Nikon CPU to communicate __ maybe.)

    The Sigma 14mm worked perfectly on the D70 and both the N90 & N90s for a few
    months until it failed while I was on the last trip [naturally]. I trust
    Strauss to have tested the lens and determined if indeed it had failed as
    they said.
