You're right! I had tried the Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO Macro OS + FT1 on my V1, the camera did not recognised as a lens being attached.

It seems that longtime ago, may be in May 2011, Nikon filed a lawsuit against Sigma, claiming that the independent lens maker infringed a Nikon patent relating to vibration reduction technology used in its DSLR lenses.

So no hope that all Sigma lenses will work on Nikon 1!
