No fix for the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 Nikon D7100 bug


I had sent a question to Sigma asking, whether they are going to fix the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 Nikon D7100 bug, i.e. image stabilization staying on and bugged scrolling in zoomed image review.

I received this answer:

"This behavior is related to the operation of the OS unit of the lens when it is used in conjunction with the Nikon D7100. The OS unit stays in communication with the camera body for about 1 minute after a camera’s auto-off feature shuts down the camera between exposures while still in the on mode. This is because our lenses are designed to stand by for operation; Nikon cameras have no provision for determining the status of the OS unit. This will also cause the need to press the multi selector of the Nikon D7100 each time to scroll or zoom in when reviewing your images on the D7100 LCD screen. These symptoms only occur on the Nikon D7100 camera, there is nothing wrong with the lens. If and when you recognize the phenomena mentioned above, please note they will not cause any malfunction to the camera body, you can keep using our products without any worry."

So the answer is probably "NO".

Anyway, this does not explain why other image-stabilized lenses work without problems with D7100.
