If Sigma can do it, it's free. All you have to do is call/e-mail to confirm that it is possible and send the lens to them with the note describing the camera(s) you are using it with.

Note that some really old or less popular lenses may not be rechipped.

If it is either the Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO Macro (with HSM and 77mm Filter) or the Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO Macro (without HSM, but also with a 77mm filter), you are out of luck.

I just contacted Sigma regarding this issue a few weeks ago and they no longer have the required spare parts to make the upgrade.

These particular lenses (the exact one I cite above) are very good lenses. It is too bad that Sigma cannot resurrect those out there.

In addition, these lenses are no longer produced.

Please be aware that Sigma also produced:

400mm F5.6 (this lens has a terrible reputation)
400mm F5.6 APO with 72mm filter (a decent lens, but not nearly as good as the 77mm versions) - I don't think Sigma is upgrading this lens either, but I am not positive.

Enjoy! Lon

I had the 400/5.6 APO with 72 mm filter and Sigma was not able to re-chip it either.
