Sigma 878205 overview

  • 1Description

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 Sony A 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.

    Sigma 878205 reviews

    USB Dock for Sony A-Mount Lenses is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat disaapointed I recently received a sigma 35mm 1.4 DG for Christmas, I was beyond excited! But i am having some serious auto-focus issues and even a little hang ups with the sensitivity on manual focus. After reading up on it, I purchased this dock . I was hoping to be able to customize the focus points and maybe get a little more fine tuning to the sony. The Sigma Optimization Software is really easy to use and install, they even provide step by step videos. Unfortunately, it just can't do much for my 35mm. I can see where it would work wonders for the longer range lenses , but don't waste the dollars for portrait length. The entire buying and installation process was definitely 5 stars, but the actual benefit of the product for me was lacking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sigma accessory! I shoot with a Sony Alpha 65 that does not have a microadjustment focus feature, so I was very glad to be able to get this to use with my Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Dc Hsm Art Lens. This also allows for many more adjustments than an in camera adjustment would, it really makes a world of difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Useful Tool The dock came with the Sigma 24-105mm lens I bought as a packaged deal. My copy was a bit off at focusing at around 70mm and 105mm. The focus plane falls short of the target by a large margin. This is when the dock comes in real handy. After some adjustments (by trial and error), now my lens is tack sharp at these two focus lengths.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Useful Tool You will need this if your Sigma lenses need adjustments. My a-mount Sigma 24-105mm was a bit front-focus out of box at 70mm and 105mm so I had to use it to make adjustments. The good thing was it came with the lens for free, part of the reason I grabbed deal as soon as it appeared.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Future: This is a fascinating device that helps future proof compatible lenses. The supporting software indicates that it can adjust a number of firmware metrics depending on the lens used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh gosh When I was just using micro adjustments, in camera. I found that things changed from close up to far . I didn't need it as much micro adjustments. At far as i needed close up. I picked up a Autofocus Calibration Aid. That when i found out what was going on. I was inputting micro adjustments ever time i want in for a close up . this got old fast . the USB Dock has Fixed this . i can hit focus ever time at F1.4 . close up through out the 4 zones . The software program is easy to use. Install was simple . I don't like the fact. It look's to see if the firmware. Is up to date, ever time you dock the lens .It would be nice if had a setting look only once a day .My 35 mm has 4 focus zone's to edit. Take picture put on dock wait for the firmware is up to date.edit zone take picture wait for firmware is up to date. now edit. I think you get the point now moveing on . in the software. Editing the zone's. selecting the zone... Ya i scrached my head a little on that part . To make it simple Click the 0 under the red line , in the zone . You want to edit.. very simple once you know were to click ! Autofocus Calibration Aid, you will need this .To see what your doing. So the question's Dose it work ? YES it dose ! Is it worth the money ? YES it is ! Is it easy to use ?once you know were to click . YES it is . Any thing you would change ? Yes looking to see if the lens is up to date ! Can we say annoying ? YES WE CAN!
