Sigma Optimization Pro v1.1 with Lens firmware updates

Sigma just updated its Optimization Pro software to version 1.1.

This updated version of software will allow customers to secure all the settings and adjustment values of AF and OS that are customized via the USB Dock.
Please update to Ver 1.1 before operating firmware update of 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC macro OS HSM C013 and 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A012.

Download: Sigma Optimization Pro 1.1: Mac | Win

Optimization Pro 1.1 updates the firmware of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM and Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM lenses.

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Firmware 1.02 changes:
  • Refined AF algorithm to reduce the operating noise.
  • Improved smoothness of AF as it starts up and stops.
Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Firmware 1.01 changes:

Thanks, Fred! Saw this on the FM home page and was taken here...
to the less astute, this is indeed the Canon Forum.
The Nikon mount 35 'A' needs NO update (believe me, I tried)
Hopefully I can spare a few a WTF moment. Just sayin'

I did the update, then connected my 35 and went to the focus adjust section. My previous settings had disappeared; all four possibilities were sitting at zero. Now I'll have to do the shooting and evaluations again. I didn't anticipate that.

Lars, had you already made settings for your 35; if so, did you lose them?

I didn't check it before updating to the latest firmware. So I don't know. I did some changes a few weeks ago. But it was only some small changes.

ive updated mine, still says 1.01 though , every time i connect it , it says firmware update available, you would think it would not offer an update if it was upto date.

In general I'm very happy with the AF accuracy of my 35mm copy. Well, once taken into account the huge size of the central AF point in the 6D, which may cover too many subjects on "distant" targets (and not necessarily locking in the nearest). Maybe the 5D3 would be "better" on this respect. In fact, the outer points, despite less capable, seem more accurate with far subjects, and this includes very well isolated targets (as a full moon, for example; I'll post later a few pics).

I just have ordered the dock mainly to have the latest firmware, not because any problem with the lens, which is awesome. BTW, I laughed at Sigma reasoning for the update, but later I do noticed a taste of abnormal sounds one time, in a silent enough environment, so they certainly may occur (have been unable to intentionally reproduce them later, though).

I have a question for those who have updated: have you noticed a change?. Do you find your lens equal, better or worse after the update?.

One more question... as everybody could expect from a software developer, I'm wary about software updates . Does somebody know if it possible to downgrade to a previous firmware version using the Sigma update software?
