If I were to really let my imagination run wild, I could dream up some conspiracy about Sony intentionally disabling Sigma lenses in firmware.

Of course, this would likely harm Sony sale as well, with users delaying, or refusing to upgrade bodies so they can continue to use there Sigma lenses. So, it's pretty difficult to think that scenario would ever be reality.

Your imagination is working way too hard. Sigma is a third party lens maker. Just like companies that make after-market grips, they operate independently of Sony. There is no Oliver Stone Conspiracy at work. Give Sigma enough credit to know that Sony cameras have built-in steady-shot.
