    Way back when... when I tested a number of these 2 years ago, I found units that worked and units that didn't work. I ended up giving up my own, as mine was in the category that didn't work.
    The randomness of this was also a bit off-putting. It wasn't the firmware version alone that decided if this was a working or non working specimen.

    If I rememer correctly, the way to make the non-working specimens go "bad", was to open up the iris fully through metadata-control. As long as I didn't do that, it worked.

    For the ones I tested, taking the lens out and putting it back "solved" that. But that's not really an option in many situations.
    Life is good. So is RED...

    Just discovered this with my model of 18-35. Before I waste 40 on the usb dock is it 100% that updating the lens firmware has no effect?

    Any update on this issue? Can anyone say if their Sigma 18-35 Art is fully working with Foolcontrol?

    I updated my 18-35mm and it had no effect.

    We are talking about the photo version of the Sigma 18-35 Art and not the cine version, right?
