Is my Sigma lens dead ?

I have a Nikon D70s, Sigma 18-200mm and a Nikkor 50mm.

Haven't been using the camera for maybe a month now, but the last time I used it, it worked perfectly.
Today I took my camera out, the Sigma couldn't auto focus and shutter would not release to take the picture.
If I switch to manual focus, I can take the picture.

Then I tried the 50mm, so far it could auto focus and works normally.

So I figured my Sigma died on me, am I right ?

The problem is that I'm in the UK now, and will be going back to Malaysia in less than 2 months time.
Not sure if I want to try to repair it here or not. My warranty is over anyways.

Anybody knows how much will it cost to repair the lens in Malaysia ?
It'll cost about £100 (RM500) to repair in the UK.

Any other advice ?

Really saddening

Yeah, this is what happened to me too when I'm using the sigma 18-200 for Sony mount.

I think you can send it back to the shop that you've bought it from, and I'm sure they gave you 1 year warranty ?

it'll take about 1 month to have it replaced
