disasterpiece: Is it just me or do the D810 images look better?
have your eyes checked
Kevin Fitzsimons: I've been a Canon user for almost 30 years and my aging body can't take carrying the large bodies and lenses any longer. I'm now using a Think Tank roller camera case, but I'm also building my Fuji X system. When Fuji comes out with a pro flash system, I'm making the switch. I was hoping Canon would introduce a pro level mirrorless camera, but I don't think it's going to happen.
I'm done with Canon, I still might buy a lens here or there, but never buying another Canon camera again. If I would want to buy a camera that is 3-6 years behind competition I would just buy a older cheaper camera from the competition.
BlueBomberTurbo: Congrats, Canon! Welcome to 2010! :D
haha, so true
backayonder: All these updates would be fine if I had unlimited broadband bandwidth each month. 8GB is just not enough to watch my football team currently top of the Premier League I might add never mind finding bandwidth for all these constant Adobe updates. I am sure that when Photoshop was available on a disk they took more care before releasing a new version.
you mean back in the day with lightroom 5 when updates where 900mb, but now with lightroom 6 updates are 240mb?
Glenn Barber: If not said previously - the most important question is - will this now work reliably and fast enough on a Sony A7RII or 6300 for BIF
Glenn Barber, its works very well with metabones, i'm expecting even better results with sigma adapter, have one on order.
Yes it does
new boyz: It shows just how good Sigma is in reverse engineering.
@ Rishi Metabones is emulating the old Sony adapters, and that doesn't give you all the AF options. Sigma is not the first to do this, TechArt made an adapter (that works with Canon lenses) and will emulate an native lens. It was done 5+ months ago.
Metabones eventually will have to change that.
I'm surprised that Sony will not release a new adapter for A mount lenses to adapt natively to the E mount.
Sarge_: From a sales perspective, I cannot fathom why they would make a Sigma mount over a Nikon mount.
Surely there are more Nikon users who also own Sony E mount cameras than their are Sigma camera owners with E-mount cameras?
don't forget the stupid AF motors in a lot of Nikon lenses.
belle100: I have doubt that this will work for Canon lenses because it is printed clearly "DESIGNATED SIGMA LENSES ONLY" on the adapter.Perhaps Sigma can make a different version that will do with Canon lenses and charge a much high price. And yet, make another version and charge even higher for those Nikonese.
why would they bother? they want to sell their lenses, not sell Canon lenses.
photonius: Dear CanonIn your shift to "upmarket", don't forget the Rebel owners. I don't want a heavier upmarket model, I will always stay with Rebels for weight. But I sure would appreciate (and maybe buy a new body) if you would not cripple the Rebels in software, why not give them MFA, timers, and other things that can be implemented with little extra cost. And a GPS for travel...
@ photonius if you worry about weight so much, stop buying DSLRs. There are much much better options out there now.
photon_trap: Hopefully better than Metabones (etc) junk......Why do lens adapters suck so much? I have always had huge troubles with them.
must be the user. my metabones works great.
chriscotec: I missed the fact that this probably only works for cropped sensor (E) bodies or full frame (FE) bodies in crop mode, looking at the size of the camera side aperture in the mount. Still, it is useful for video in cropped mode on FF bodies. A FE mount adapter would have been better though.
this is full frame adapter.
but if they not cripple them how are they going to sell more expensive dobies.
Otto Van De Steene: the question is if it can also handle other canon mount lenses like those from canon or for example the tamron 24-70 f2.8
no it can't, this is for 19 sigma lenses.
what a BS interview, doesn't really answer any questions, just a typical PR BS.
G-D: So no "exciting" Canon mirrorless camera coming any time soon then, as promised by Maeda-san in September 2015?
you got the exciting M10 already, what else can you ask for?
KrisAK: Photo was taken with an A7R II. I wonder if he noticed? Not that it means anything, just kind of ironic.
haha!! that great, Canon Interview and photo of Canon Executive shot with Sony
nekrosoft13: if they make one for Pentax K or Olympus OM mount I will buy both :)
you missed the point, i would like the same type of adapter like this techart one, that would move back and forth to help with AF.
if they make one for Pentax K or Olympus OM mount I will buy both :)
villagranvicent: If I have 400 dlls to spend, I rather sell my Canon 50mm 1.4 USM and buy a proper 55mm Zeiss glass for my A7 instead of paying for this.
@villagranvicent, "takes seconds to focus" check your facts before posting BS, with A7II and A7RII you can focus just as fast as with Canon body, there is no delay.
