The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its lens firmware version 2.00 for its SIGMA GLOBAL VISION (SGV) interchangeable lenses compatible with Canon digital cameras featuring Lens Aberration Correction. The three types of corrective functions available are for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, and distortion.

By updating their lens firmware to version 2.00, customers with compatible SGV interchangeable lenses for Canon cameras can perform aberration corrections that match the optical characteristics of their lenses. In addition, by turning Lens Aberration Correction on and before taking photographs, users can prevent certain image and operation errors from occurring.

"users can prevent certain image and operation errors from occurring"

Doses the above means that MFO* works as expected with the 85/1.4 and other "Art" lenses.

*MFO, Manual Focus Override means that you can adjust the AF on the fly without going MF...

How does it work?

My understanding is this can work only if Canon cooperates with Sigma in image correction. Sounds to me like the camera firmware gets data from the lens' firmware indicating how much correction to apply.

Perhaps one of our resident experts can explain how this works?  I don't understand it.

I would like to know this as well. Also, is this any different from lightroom corrections, if you shoot raw?
