    If your lens is a Sport or Contemporary model, you might want to consider getting the Sigma dock and do future firmware updates yourself. I don't have one and have never done firmware updates to any lenses, but some people here have done it. That way if you upgrade to a newer body, you might not have to send in the lens again. Just a thought.

    That is it in a nutshell. The brand you start with tends to be the one you stay with (for amateurs.) The longer you have it, and the more of it that you accumulate, the harder it is to change.
