Sigma 878109 Overview

  • 1Description
  • 2Sigma Optimization Pro
  • 3Focus Settings
  • 4Sports Line-Specific Settings

The Sigma USB Dock allows you to connect your Sigma Global Vision lenses to your computer in order to update firmware and adjust focus setting parameters using the Sigma Optimization Pro software.

This dock is only compatible with the Sigma Art, Contemporary, and Sports line lenses featuring a Pentax K lens mount.

Sigma Optimization Pro

Once a Sigma Art, Contemporary, or Sports line lens is connected, you can use the Sigma Optimization Pro software to configure focus settings and update lens firmware.

Focus Settings

For all lines of lenses, there are four categories for prime lenses and 16 categories (four options for focal length, four options for shooting distance) for zoom lenses available. These categories allow you to set certain focusing settings to better suit your personal shooting style.

Sports Line-Specific Settings

If using a Sports line lens, additional lens configurations are available: three different AF speed modes to modify how quickly the lens changes focus; the ability to constrain focus distances within a specific range to suit your personal shooting habits; and three Optical Stabilizer modes to suit the manner in which you are shooting.

Process only work for the particular sensor being calibrated

My experience was that while the centre sensor used for the process is calibrated, if instead I then manually chose another sensor the pictures would still came out blurry. However this didn't seem to be the case if the sensor to be used was determined by the camera (like when it's set to automatic) Very strange!

Not much to say other than it was drop-dead simple to update the lens firmware with the USB dock.

Used the dock to update firmware on my Sigmas 17-70 lens. Prior to the update I had been disappointed in the lens, lacked sharpness. After the update which was quick and simple with the dock I am very pleased with the performance of the 17-70 lens.

$59 for almost 2-day worth of entertainment but...

I purchased this to calibrate my new 18-35 F1.8 lens. The lens took sharp close-up shots like flowers etc. but slightly blurry landscape photos. After spending almost two days (not the entire day) calibrating, I thought I finally got myself a perfect lens... only to find out later on the process only worked for the centre focusing sensor ,the one that I used for calibration !! The finding was super disappointing, although it isn't too inconvenient to first focus with the centre sensor then panned the camera but I thought that all the sensors should be communicating with each other so it's odd that they don't. Sigma should release another firmware update to address this issue.

Future-proofing lenses

This is a great way to keep your camera lenses updated also you don't have to worry about compatibility issues with future camera bodies. The USB dock with the optimization pro software is very easy to download to a pc from the Sigma website to calibrate the lens quickly. Depending on the lens you use optimization is your choice. This is one of the reasons I chose to go with Sigma lenses. This will make buying a camera lens from another manufacturer extremely difficult.
