Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America announced the availability of its new Sigma Global Vision lens converter—the MC-11 mount converter for Sony E-mount, full-frame and APS-C sensor cameras. The MC-11 gives Sony E-mount camera users access to 15 Sigma Canon mount (EF) and Sigma mount (SA) Global Vision lenses.
“I have long been lured by the promise of aftermarket adapters to make all of the wonderful Sigma Art lenses work on my Sony mirrorless cameras, but there was always a let down of some type. . . . until now,” said Brian Linhoff, a Sigma tech rep. “I had the privilege of taking one of the first MC-11 products out for a test shoot and it worked flawlessly. Anyone that has dealt with the usual frustration of adapting lenses can appreciate that it worked in every aspect that I could think to test.”
The built-in MC-11 LED display lets users know if the attached Sigma lens is compatible and if it needs to be updated. The Sigma lens can be updated from a workstation or laptop using the Sigma Optimization Pro software and the optional Sigma USB Dock.
Engineered for Sony E-mount cameras, the Sigma MC-11 features an internal control data system that automatically optimizes performance of AF drive, aperture control and other lens functions, such as brightness, and corrects transverse chromatic aberration and distortion. Compatibility with both Sigma lens optical stabilization and Sony in-camera sensor-shift stabilization ensures correction of camera shake and other stability issues. When used with in-camera stabilization, MC-11 allows angle shake correction in the lens. The integrated flocking helps prevent internal reflections and reduction in lens performance.
