    Sigma / Nikon D5300 -- firmware fixes

    http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/11...&ref=title_0_4

    Sigma's statement:

    [top]Information Regarding the Nikon D5300 Cameras

    Thank you very much for purchasing and using Sigma products.
    We have found that the current firmware of our Nikon fitting interchangeable lenses may not work properly with the Nikon D5300’s OS and Live View Auto Focus functions.
    For those customers who own Sigma lenses in Nikon mount, we are going to provide a free firmware update service.
    Please note that all the products we dispatch from the factory will have the latest firmware.

    [top]Phenomenon

    Without the latest firmware, the OS and Live View Auto Focus functions do not work properly when it is used with the Nikon D5300.

    • Firmware upgrade cannot be applied to the lenses that do not have an internal motor.
    • For some discontinued products, we may not be able to offer the firmware update due to the discontinuation of related repair parts. Please contact your nearest authorized Sigma distributor for the further details.
