Sigma updates several lenses

Sigma today published a number of firmware updates for lenses and the mount adapter MC-11. The new releases improve compatibility of older lenses that are connected to EOS and Nikon Z6 / Z7 via an adapter.

Sigma lenses with Canon EOS R

First row of update concerns APS-C lenses with Canon EF mount that are attached to the camera via the EOS R adapter. Previously, the camera would not switch to 1.6x crop mode automatically. The update fixes this issue for the following lenses:

  • SIGMA 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM | Contemporary
  • SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | Contemporary
  • SIGMA 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art
  • SIGMA 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art

With the 100-400mm, the update corrects a problem that could cause the camera to lock up when the lens was detached from the camera with the stabilizer still engaged.

  • SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary

Sigma lenses with Nikon Z6, Z7

Sigma confirms that all statements regarding the compatiblity of existing lenses that are atteched to the Nikon Z7 via adapter FTZ also apply to the Z6.

Further, a firmware update is available that corrects a problem that could cause overexposure with aperture values below F5.6:

  • SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art
