Nikon Sigma 180 Macro, inconsistent auto focus

Summary: I purchased this lens because I wanted more distance when taking macro photos. As I do with all new lenses I purchase, I calibrate the AF (I have a Nikon D300 with AF Fine Tuning capability). What I found is that the AF on this lens has too much back lash to consistently focus. I took 5 pictures of a static object using a cable release and the camera mounted on a tripod. Before each picture was taken, I would rotate the focus ring either clockwise or counter clockwise.
