Sony A mount and Sigma lens question...
6 months ago

Hello,

I'm trying to buy camera for my father. He has old film Minolta 5 with Sigma 28-200 lens (purchased circa 1999). As I understand this lens should work on the Sony camera with A-mount.

I'm myself Canon user and have had couple of Sigma lenses in the past that would require sending them to the Sigma service for re-programming in order for them to work with Canon DSLRs. Is there any concern that Sigma 28-200 lens may have issues with Sony cameras?

Thanks.
