Re: M5 does not love Sigma 17-50 2.8

As already pointed out on the other thread, Sigma's 18-250mm exhibits the same issue of the OS "hanging" after power-down, preventing a immediate power-up until the OS is made to "let go."  One poster (Scooterch) said that just flipping the catch on the battery door on the M3 released the OS, and I can confirm this on my M3 with the 18-250.  But, apparently the M5 requires the battery to be removed in order to release the OS.  Is this the way that you get the OS to release on your M5 when shooting your Sigma zoom?
