  • The older lenses will not have coatings on them that were developed for digital but I have several and have seen no issues.

  • The older lenses will not have distance integration, but that is only a problem when taking flash photos with a reflective background.

  • The older lenses will be screwdriver type focus, slower and noisier

  • Sigma lens compatibility issues are with the first generation of SLT bodies (A33, A35, A55). I have three Sigmas I use on my A77 with no issues, admittedly they are post film days lenses.
