Sigma released new firmware updates for issues with the Nikon D6 camera


A few days ago Sigma released new firmware updates for several F-mount lenses that fixes issues with the Nikon D6 camera:

  • It has improved the start-up time after the Nikon D6 power is turned on.
  • It has fixed an issue where the autofocus did not work when used on a Nikon D6.

Impacted lenses:
