Sigma issues advisory on lens compatibility with Nikon D5300
Sigma has posted a statement on its website regarding incompatibilities between its lenses and the Nikon D5300. Lenses with built-in focus motors may not autofocus correctly in Live View mode, and Optical Stabilisation (OS) may not work correctly. The company says it will provide a free firmware update for affected lenses to fix the issue, but this may not be possible with discontinued models.
Information Regarding the Nikon D5300 Cameras
Thank you very much for purchasing and using Sigma products.
We have found that the current firmware of our Nikon fitting interchangeable lenses may not work properly with the Nikon D5300’s OS and Live View Auto Focus functions.
For those customers who own Sigma lenses in Nikon mount, we are going to provide a free firmware update service.
Please note that all the products we dispatch from the factory will have the latest firmware.
Without the latest firmware, the OS and Live View Auto Focus functions do not work properly when it is used with the Nikon D5300.
