Sigma's USB dock came in today. Updating the lens firmware with it was a breeze, and now the lens focuses perfectly with every point and at every distance.


Fantastic. Now you better post a load of pics to prove it.

I can also confirm. My USB dock arrived today. Updated the lens to latest firmware and outer focus points are perfect! Before they would back focus significantly on my D800 and slightly on my D600. Both cameras now work flawlessly with the lens with all focus points and all distance in comparison to just the center point working well before.

The lens was always a winner, but now it is just fantastic!

Ok ok, so here is the first one right after I upgraded the firmware, testing the famous D800 left AF point with the Sigma 35/1.4, wide open (while my little photographer was enjoying his D40):

Amazon just dropped the price of this lens 5%, to $857.47. Makes it even more tasty!

Thorsten, your lens is clearly severely flawed and you must sell it to me right away for £50.

Just dropped another 4% at Amazon… now $817.11 with free shipping. Only 17 left in stock though, so hurry!

I ordered mine last week through the 47st photo deal, otherwise I'd be all over this!

Funny, the Canon version is still $899. Ah well, yet another reason to be a Nikon user.

Just picked this lens up as well as the dock. However, my lens already came with the latest firmware. Just wanted to let any prospective buyers know in case they were worried.

FWIW, I got my lens today from B&H along with the dock, and the lens did need the firmware update, but I didn't have any focus issues with it either before or after the Firmware update. seems to be a good copy, after a quick test, it appears to be focusing well and living up to the hype. given a quick glance, it may not need much fine tuning either, but I need to do some more extensive evaluation, only had a short time to play with it today before work...
