Ask Nikon about it. They will give you a link.

Thanks. I have done. Thought to ask here whilst I wait for them to get back to me.

How about asking Sigma? Wouldn't they have a concern for their customers in regards to the longevity of their product to keep their customer base happy and trusting that the products they purchase from them are not just disposable items. Perhaps they have something to load to make it compatible with the recent upgrade. They had to have done it in the first place of initially offering their lens.

If I'm off please enlighten me to how 3rd party compatibility works in the first place in order to sell their product.

Not sure. I guess it involved business lunches, suits & a heated discussion about license fees -all without the presence of the software engineers

Edit, just read jj168 reply who I seem to be echoing. Makes sense.

Thanks for your time.

TBH, I think it makes sense to first return to the point before the fix which caused the fault (ie Nikon's firmware update)

Secondly, wouldn't I need a Sigma dock and compatible lens to do as you kindly suggest? I think I'd have to send my lens off to be rechipped. As nuke12 says...

....the expense or time required to send the lens away.

Finally -the sentence "Wouldn't they have a concern for their customers in regards to the longevity of their product to keep their customer base happy and trusting that the products they purchase from them are not just disposable item"

???! I must be in an alternative reality to you my friend Where I'm from consumerism is largely driven along a predetermined path of planned obsolescence
