Sigma has released new information regarding compatibility of its lenses with the Canon EOS R.
I’ve posted the entire statement below; however, I wanted to note a little bit of anecdotal evidence on the topic. I’m currently testing the EOS R and have used it with the base EF adapter and Sigma lenses in my normal operating manner. Even with 15-year-old Sigma lenses, my results have been just fine. There may be some edge-case uses that I haven’t attempted yet that end up throwing me for a loop – but so far, so good.

Sigma revealed the price of the recently announced 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens at just $1599. As with other Sigma lenses, I think this is an incredible price point for such a killer lens. I was able to play with it for a bit back at NAB last month and I think its going to be a real hit as a portrait option. [Read more…]
