    Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    HERE is a link to a post with compatibility chart of Sigma lenses.

    This suggests that, via the adapter, these lenses will function as one would expect a native lens to behave. There are a couple of interesting lenses on the list. The 120-300 F2.8. I had one for my Canon and its a great lens. If the adapter makes it function as a native E mount lens its a really compelling option. I still have the two matching Sigma teleconverters. I wonder if they would work as well as they did on the Canon?

    120 2.8 to 600 F5.6 is a nice range.

    Re: Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    Here is a list of the functions the Sigma MC-11 adapter will support for each of the Sigma EF lenses. Notice not all of the FE functions are supported.
    Particularly the AFC.

    Thanks for finding this information.

    The no AFC is a major omission. I wonder what the problem is and if it will be added in a subsequent update to firmware.

    It makes me rethink its value.

    Could it be because focal plane hybrid af is not on all the cameras? Atm, iirc it's only a7rm2 and a7m2.
    Let's hope that the compatibility list is conservative, and focal plane phase detection is support.

    Fast hybrid af is on AF-C only,so the text on sigma site is a little confusing.

    Re: Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    So the BIG NEWS on this adapter, according to DPR, is that it retains all native lens AF functions - EYE AF, Center AF Lock, etc. Sounds like a well engineered unit. Thanks Sigma!

    Re: Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    This is really big news.

    Not for me as I am pretty close to fully lensed out. But for any A7r2 or a6300 owner that is lens shopping ... Wow!

    FYI - B&H has updated the expected availability on the MC-11 adapter to 'beginning of May'.

    Glad I sold my two to get the Sony zoom. I'm native today so worked out good.

    I'm still loving the ART 20mm 1.4. The MC-11 will likely be permanently attached to that one, while my Metabones will live on the Canon 135mm 2. They both perform so well on the Sony, I tend to think of them as native lenses. (although I'd drop the Canon in a heartbeat for a native 135mm GM!)

    This adapter makes the Sigma 120-300 a consideration for me.
    I had the Canon version before they updated to the Sport designation.
    Its a great lens and probably would go for it rather than 2.8 70-200 Sony GM and then also sell of my Tamron 150-600 with is a nice lens but longer than I really need.

    Sigma MC-11 shipped

    Just got notice from B&H that they've shipped my MC-11 adapter. Looking forward to native performance from my 20mm 1.4!

    Hi MikeEvangelist,
    That is great news, I guess the million dollar question is whether this adapter will work with non Sigma Canon lenses....

    Do you have any straight Canon mount lenses to try it on by any chance?

    Thanks in advance!

    I do; a 135mm 2. I'll try it and report as soon as the thing arrives (looks like Tuesday).

    Re: Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    MC-11 just arrived. It is made in Japan. As you might expect, it's well made and nicely finished. Both mounts fit snugly and click into place solidly.

    My only Sigma lens, the 20mm ƒ1.4 ART, works well. It picks up focus magnify on manual focus and Eye AF, along with more complete/accurate EXIF lens data. Nice.

    As has already been reported, there is basic functionality with Canon lenses. I only have one Canon lens, a 135mm ƒ2 L, but that works as expected. My initial impression is that it doesn't focus quite as sure-footedly as the Metabones, with this lens. Also I notice that the EXIF data isn't as good as when the same lens is used on the Metabones. The Metabones reports the Canon lens as: 135mm F2 G SSM which it is, while the MC-11 shows: DT 135mm F0 SAM.

    Re: Sigma MC11 Canon EF to E mount adapter

    Bought the MC-11 today. Tried it out with Sigma 35mm Art and 50mm Art. They work fine. Tried it out with a Canon 35mm f/1.4 and 24mm mk2 TS. Both work fine as well.
