"The new Sigma Optimization Pro software and USB Dock are designed exclusively for these new product lines and will enable Sigma users to connect their lenses to their computers to update lens firmware and fine-tune focus parameters via easy-to-use, on-screen controls."




Just imagine what the Canon and Nikon engineers said when they saw this



And I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that a new Sigma 24 f/1.4 is on the way...

This is great news for Canon/Nikon shooters as well, hopefully it forces their hands to get some more creative ideas in the mix.

It is official..... Sigma is my favorite company of 2012.

(mockup of the UI)






DE: We talked about the USB dock on the Sport lenses, where you can change the focus limit. Other than that, is its main use to adjust the front or back focus of the lens that matches your body?

KY: Yes, it's like a micro-adjustment in the body. But for in-body micro-adjustment, you can only change the focus correction for the entire focusing range. If you are happy with the focus accuracy at infinity, but you are not happy with it at three meters, when you change the settings for three meters then you are off at infinity. The focus position for

OH that micro adjust via USB KILLS. So much more flexible than MA in the camera. I suspect there may be some in camera MA also as bodies and lenses tend to have their own quirks but still that software will be the S#!^.

"The new USB Dock allows users to update the lens firmware themselves, but that’s not all that it can do - you can also change the following:

- Autofocus speed – 3 options= Fast, Normal, Slow
- Focus Limiter – like Sony A99, distance scale via two sliders
- Micro-AF adjust – can select a focal length to adjust and a distance – offers much more control than body-only systems
- On/Off button to toggle between customised options and default settings."

This is super-cool If I had had something like this for my Siggy 85, I would have kept it. Unfortunately, I couldn't MA on my 5Dc, but this may have helped!

It may take a lot of the risk out of the Sigma "lottery".... Makes the 35 very intruiging.

This interview with Sigma's CEO is pretty good. It gets interesting right around the 8 minute mark. He talks about this lens specifically and how it handles CA.

This technology sounds fantastic. Assuming this only be available for the new lenses they release, I wonder if that means we might see updated versions of current lenses such as the sigmalux, and 85mm that incorporate this ability?

Fascinating. Fixing a problem I didn't know I had. That's a cool new technology that'll save a few returns and trips to the service center.

This is great for Sigma and will fix the issue of this siggy not working with the latest Canon/Nikon bodies.
Would love to see Sigma offer a competitive dslr with solid high iso iq and a quick and accurate af system.
A major step forward, and potential solution to the current limits of reverse engineering that Sigma and other 3rd party manufacturers face.

I read the OOF rendering not to be that good,
makes it a deal braker for me...
sharpness is tested though better than Canikon.
