D750 + Sigma 150-600 S, issues with latest firmwares?

Dear all,

has anyone else also experienced problems using the Sigma lens with its latest firmware (1.04) on the D750 with the latest firmware (1.12)?

When I tried that combination, the autofocus was sometimes struggling. More importantly, the camera would give me the dreaded 'Err' message and mirror lock-up on the first high speed (<1/1000 sec) actuation after start-up. As widely reported on dpr, another press of the shutter button then takes a heavily underexposed picture and clears the 'Err' message and mirror lock-up. Because the D750 is notorious for this 'Err' problem and mine is on the extended recall list, I initially thought it was due for a shutter replacement. However, the 'Err' messages are gone since I downgraded the camera to firmware 1.11.

Does anyone here have similar experience with that combination of hard and software?
