The SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 and TC-2001, announced during Photokina 2014, have been developed exclusively for Sigma's new Global Vision lenses and offer the best glass materials to ensure the best image quality. Please note that SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports requires an update to the firmware to make it compatible with the SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 and SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-2001.

For those who own the SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens and plan to use it with the new SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 or SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-2001, it will be necessary to update the firmware of the lens as outlined in the steps below.

Please be advised that the updated version of firmware will make it compatible with the new tele converters, however it will also make it incompatible with conventional APO TELE CONVERTER 1.4x EX DG and APO TELE CONVERTER 2x EX DG. For further information, please contact your nearest authorized subsidiary / distributor of SIGMA.
