That lens was designed in 2007 or before.

It's probably a question of firmware. If it is, Sigma can update it for free depending on whether production overlapped D5300 production.

You don't really need AF for a fisheye. You can usually either focus it at 1m for closeish things or 3m for infinity, and let depth of field do the rest. I regularly used fisheyes with manual focus.

hi,

I actually bought that lens as used one recently and not sure whether any issue with the lens or firmware . Based on suggestions from earlier post  I reached Sigma about this issue and they asked me to send the lens for inspection.  Once its back will use the Manual focus in case they cant fix it.
