"Nikon D600 not recognising Sigma 140 DG Macro ring flash"
Hello, I bought a Nikon D600 body to upgrade from a D100 , with which I used to successfully use the Sigma Macro ring flash and a 105mm macro lens. The D 600 does not seem to recognise and accept the flash, IF , I turn the camera on first and then the flash. However , if I turn the flash on first and then the camera , the camera does recognise the flash and flash fires upon taking a picture.
The flash also fires if I have turned the camera on first but the shutter is open for very long period as the camera keeps forgetting there s a flash on it it and shutter does does close , causing an over exposure and blurred image.
I am new to D600 and am wondering if it is me ??? I cant understand why turning the flash before the camera is Ok but the other way around is not . Any advice will be much appreciated . Thanking you, Anand

Welcome to Nikonians!
According to Compatibility Table EM-140 DG Macro Flash on Sigma's website the D600 is not listed as being compatible with the EM-140 DG. Keep in mind that the above table could be old and requires updating, though the D600 has been out for quite some time now. In the past, Sigma has re-chipped lenses to add compatibility to new camera bodies. They might provide a firmware update or upgrade for your flash though I suspect you will have to ship it to their Service Dept. You should contact Sigma Customer Service to find out for sure.
