Sigma Calibration Pro Software/USB lens docking station to be released in 2013


According to this video, the software will be free to download starting in early 2013, and the USB dock will be available for purchase at that time.

This seems to be a brilliant idea. Some of the things it will allow you to do:

-Adjust the AF of each lens by focus distance and focal length
-Adjust the focus limiter on the lens
-Adjust the AF speed on the lens.
-Upgrade the firmware of the lens

In theory, if you spent some time adjusting a lens, you could have a lens that was 100% perfect in focusing, regardless of the focus distance. Since a significant part of perceived lens sharpness comes from focus accuracy, this could be a huge innovation in digital photography.
