    Can't focus after firmware update

    So I did the lovely firmware update,1.13 and now I have no auto focus on my two Sigma VR lenses.Once you install the update you can't go back to the 1.12 version.Guess I'll be selling two lenses.Next time I'll read the fine print.I also updated the D7100 and same thing. When will I learn.LOL

    If they are older Sigma lenses that can't be connected to a dock, you can send them back to Sigma and have the firmware updated on them. Unfortunately that's what happens with Nikon firmware updates and some third party lenses.

    Iíve taken to the line of thinking that if it ainít broke, donít fix it. Itís not like the DSLR is a connected device like my computer and in need of security patches. Upgrading just gives the opportunity for new problems to arise, so unless it fixes something itís not worth the risk.

    And it's one reason why I don't want to send my D750 in for the shutter recall. I really like my Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8, and no doubt there would be problems because Nikon automatically would update the D750 firmware.. The lens doesn't work properly in Live View, but I simply tolerate it.
