Sigma 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art module?

#10

And now 2.3 is out, still doesn’t have a module, still not even on the roadmap.

#11

@Marie anything? You indicated it would be on the roadmap, and that was almost 3 months ago.

#12

@sgospodarenko any updates? Doesn’t seem like anyone’s “reading the site” now.

Hello @twoheadedboy81,

Actually I do not have any info about the schedule of the lenses. Let’s better ask @Marie .

Regards,
Svetlana G.

Well I already tagged her almost 3 weeks ago, and that was after over 3 months ago she said it would be added to the roadmap and it hasn’t happened, so I’m not very hopeful at this point.

#15

@sgospodarenko is there anyone else who might know and will actually respond?

(Svetlana G.) #16

Good morning,

Let me call her to draw attention first.

Regards,
Svetlana G.

Hello,

sorry Id idn’t reply.
We really intend to do an optic profile for the Sigma 28mm F1.4 but infortunately I can’t give you a date of support and that’s why I haven’t added it to the roadmap.

Regards,
Marie

This is unbelievable. Sigma is one of the major lens brands and you can’t even project when you’ll have support for the lens - on ANY camera. I upgraded my software in November in good faith and had to wait 4 additional months for EOS R support (6 total from the release date), for which I did not complain even though it was unreasonable.

If there’s no projection then it seems like it’s not going to happen within my subscription term according to how far out you are projecting other modules, so maybe a YEAR from the release date at best…terrible. Lesson learned - I won’t be paying for any further versions of your software until all of my equipment is supported and will be researching other alternatives in the meantime such as Perfectly Clear, because your support is ineffective at best, and as you can see from the history of this thread, unresponsive and unhelpful, whether through the official ticketing system or the forums.

The better response would have been to involve a product person who CAN answer the question. If you “intend” to support it, it’s on a product backlog somewhere, and if it’s on a backlog then the completion date can be anticipated within a range, whether or not you personally have that information. If no one can answer that question, it’s basically a lie that there’s an intent to complete it, at least until some other outside force intervenes.

Hello,

I know this was slow but for lenses and cameras support we can’t buy all what is put on te market and so we depend on makers for loans and they can take some time.
But good news we received the Sigma 28mm F1.4 in Canon mount recently and will add its support at the end of July.

Regards,
Marie

What would be great Marie is if when there is a version which probably behaves very similarly on two mounts (Canon and Nikon versions of Sigma lenses), DxO could calculate out a preliminary version of the lens for both systems after testing one. Of course catching up with real world testing to improve profiles is more than welcome, but it would allow DxO to move at twice the pace on brand new lenses.

On a similar topic, it seems to me that end users should be able to pick alternative lenses. I shoot some older lenses which have very similar modern equivalents. I’d like to be able to pick an alternative (as no original profile exists) profile for the Lens Sharpening palette.

I’d have loaned you mine from the beginning if you paid the shipping and gave me a free year of the software had you asked. But I’m glad it’s getting added.

For those keeping track at home, as of right now this module due at the end of the month still isn’t on the roadmap.

Well the July update that was due has slipped into August as afar as I can see, or maybe its becoming version 3?

(Marie) #24

Hello,

we plan to release it on July 31st but it might slip to August 7th due to technical issues (not related to the Sigma lens).

Regards,
Marie

Thanks for the update, its frustrating for those told something is coming only to get no updates about it.

#26

It is available as of the last update as reported. About to try it on a batch of photos I took today!

Your lens saga is over.
