  • If you want the 4 year warranty, then you have to get it imported through Sigma USA. B&H, Adorama and the others have to go through Sigma USA, otherwise, it's a grey market import. And even Sigma ...
  • Has Sigma stated this somewhere? In addition, I don't buy the lack of lenses. The 30mm is plentiful. Just go to Adorama's web site and you can order a 30mm f/1.4 Art in SA mount and it will ship ...
  • You'd think that after the SD15 debacle that Sigma would learn a lesson. That is, to be honest. It's remarkable that in Asian culture, and in business culture, an apology and explanation can ...
  • Going on a bit of a rant on Sigma USA/Japan, mostly as therapy. :-) Their press release stated the sd Quattro and 30mm f/1.4 kit would be available in July, yet here we are well into the last half ...
  • Replied in Pentacon 200/4
    Yup. My FDn 300mm f/4L goes quite a bit past infinity, even on my FD cameras.
  • These were with the FDn 24mm f/2 at f/2.8. Top is out of the camera raw and bottom with color correction. It was set to auto white balance. I also see this with my FDn 17mm f/4. Not so much with ...
  • Sony A7.
  • My favorites are the 135mm f/2, 300mm f/4L and 80-200 f/4L. I tend to get color casts with my wide angles, particularly the 17mm f/4 and 24mm f/2. All New FD lenses.
  • Sorry, Tom, I should have been more clear. My understanding is the 1979 version the New FD had external focusing, whereas the 1982 New FD adopted internal focusing mechanism. I have read the 1979 ...

    Can you provide a practical example of this? I suppose if the image is printed on a highway billboard and you need to stand right up next to you there might be something that is noticeable. After ...
  • This is the one I use: http://www.ebay.com/itm/M42-screw-mount-lens-to-Sigma-SA-SD-SD15-SD1-SD14-camera-ciecio7-adapter-/251731044079?hash=item3a9c56e6ef:g:qcYAAOSwQJhUcz2v Ciecio7 does a great job ...
  • I have read the first iteration of the FDn version is a bit better than the second (internal focus) version. Do you have experience with each?
  • I'll be keeping my A7 if for no other reason but to use my Canon FD lenses with it. The 18-35 looks fantastic. I suspect I'll have one before too long, despite its weight and size.
  • Meh. Not a fan of those halos. I am anxiously awaiting the shipping of my SD Quattro so that I can try out my M42 Pentacon-Meyer 135mm f/2.8 15-blade aperture lens. It's pretty nice on the SD15. :-) ...

    I have my complaints about Sigma's cameras and some of their approaches, but this is really irrelevant. No chance this has any meaning on photo display, electronic or prints.
  • One of the best things about the old manual lenses is that nearly all of them have build-in depth of field scales. Few modern autofocus lenses have such a scale. This is used to help gauge what ...
  • This only applies to lenses that have thorium in them. They haven't been made for decades. You can find a list of them here: http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Radioactive_lenses If your lens isn't ...
  • I haven't notice flare issues with mine, but then again I generally don't shoot at those angles to the sun. Very happy with the lens, though, even wide-open. Much better than my Pentax Super ...
  • Pretty sure the concave lens predated SC technology. Probably because of the rear element that has thorium. You can set it in a window for a few weeks, or try the Ikea lamp method to get it clear. ...
  • This is an epic fail. Sigma has to come up with a solution in the camera's firmware to correct it. I can only think of one other fail worst than this - Canon's switch from FD to EF and the change ...
