Sigma EF-M 30mm 1.4 - update without a dock?
1

Hello,

Just ordered this lens from a local store, but maybe it doesn't have the latest update on it. Can I in this case update the lens through the camera itself, or I should get the dock for that?

Thats a good question, i have the lens but i dont know how to check for its update status. where would one go to see that?

With other lenses i would see it together with the body firmware, but it doesnt show for these new sigmas.

Seems there is a firmware update for several mounts. Here's a link for the update at Sigma.

Hope this helps .....

the older "non-art" 30mm 1.4 needs a dock - (but mine works fine on the M5 w/o updating)

I think you need the Sigma UD-11 dock for EF-M.

Connect the lens to a computer via the SIGMA USB DOCK UD-11 (sold separately), then open SIGMA Optimization Pro software on your computer. If the lens firmware isn't the latest version, the following message will appear: 'The latest lens firmware is available'. Click 'Yes' to update.

Isn't it possible to use that one in combination with the EF-ef-m adapter?

Not possible, the ef mount on the dock is larger. You need the UD 11 dock.
