Panasonic has released a new free firmware 1.12 upgrade for the EVA1 which improves compatibility with a number of Sigmas ART lenses. A welcomed upgrade as these lenses are a very popular choice due to their price and image quality.
Additional Sigma ART lenses supported include:
- 12-24 F4 DG HSM
- 24-70 F2.8 DG OS HSM
- 14mm F1.8 DG HSM
- 30mm F1.4 DC HSM
- 85mm F1.4 DG HSM
- 135mm F1.8 DG HSM
Along with the addition of these six lenses, a lens interface issue that caused the iris or zoom readout to display incorrectly has been resolved.
The firmware 1.12 is available to download at https://eww.pass.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av/support/content/download/EN/ep2main/soft/upgeva1_e.htm
