Nikon updates lens mounts, some Sigma lenses no longer usable on select Nikon bodies.

Two new Nikon cameras (D5300 and Df), two service advisories from Sigma.

Nikon has a go-it-alone attitude. They consider their mount and all physical connections to their cameras completely proprietary, and it's rare that they share any of this information with anyone. There are rumors of a few joint projects with Tamron, but basically when Nikon changes something they not only don't communicate it to others, they don't care if things break.

Doesn't surprise me. Nikon has been a pia company since the F3 days, when I used to sell them. They were difficult to work with then. Haven't learned their lesson yet. Sales and influence are declining. Nikon is staring into the headlights, clueless what to do. The old days are over.
