You canon users have had a load of updates. The Nikon one hasn’t had one yet.
Yeah they're really quite tame, but this was the first time they've fed from the hand. Although normally there's kids running riot and this time it was early morning so that's probably the difference.Seems you have some tame birds at that reserve Steve, nice captures.
I have an 80D that I use with mine and had no problems at allAre any of you using this lens with an 80D?
I'm currently considering the Tamron 150-600 G2 but used prices for the sigma seem quite good but I'm not sure if one would require a firmware update, depending on the age of the lens.
I noticed that too but after reading the release notes it seems that the update only improves the viewfinder stability. Mine seems to be fine so have not updated it.There is currently a massive firmware update out (March 2019) for all the lenses , it has definetly improved the definition on the lens and speeded it up a bit
hi Paul nothing that I can put my finger on and say yes its done this that or the other definitely , its just a gut feeling that others on other forums have noticed to .. I really think speeded up is possibly the wrong term , more that it has improved the burst rate I think I'm discarding far far less since doing it and there is a marked improvement in definition they dont do these updates for a laugh .I noticed that too but after reading the release notes it seems that the update only improves the viewfinder stability. Mine seems to be fine so have not updated it.
Jeff, when you say it has speeded the lens up could you elaborate a bit, I hate updating things that do not have problems but I would never say no to a bit of extra speed.
Cheers. I'm going to have a bit more of a play. I tried it again indoors and it seems it only really as an issue at 600mm going from a far subject to a close one. Seems if something is completely out of focus (as in opposite end of the range) it sometimes won't even start to look. It never hesitates going between things at similar distances.Sounds like it needs to go to sigma for a check over , they are pretty good with there pricing if it’s out of warranty ..
As Iain says that sounds like a definite problem , a trip to sigma is the best answer , worth giving them a bell first though as it might be something your doing wrong or a camera mismatch ,( unlikely )How old is your lens? If it’s in warranty send it in as I’ve never heard of anyone I know talking of the issue you are having.
Hi, I am quite happy with the Sigma's performance. I have several MF tele-lenses from Minolta, Nikon Leitz/Leica, which are all good optically,Looks like your focus point has been on the wing/side rather than the eye. But where the focus point has been is sharp.
