Benefit of this firmware update
 
  • It has corrected the phenomenon which may occur with the combination of SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11 and some of SIGMA’s interchangeable zoom lenses on Sony a9 (ILCE-9) that when using AF-S mode and shooting in telephoto range, it could occasionally display the shot as in focus, although it may not be correctly locked on the subject.
  • It has become compatible with the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art for SIGMA (Firmware Ver.1.02), CANON (Firmware Ver.1.02), as well as the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary for SIGMA (Firmware Ver.1.02) and CANON (Firmware Ver1.03).
The above firmware updates are available for installation in Sigma Optimization Pro via the Sigma USB Dock.
 
In addition to firmware updates detailed above, Sigma announced today that they are now offering a rear filter holder installation service for the otherwise incompatibile-with-front-filters 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens.
