Current Sigma Lenses Will Work on the Nikon Z7 Camera

October 26, 2018 | Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera , Lenses | Comment |

Sigma has confirmed in a statement that its current lenses will work on the new Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera via the FTZ adapter without any issues.

Interchangeable lenses that do not incorporate an AF drive motor will operate only in manual focus, while some interchangeable lenses shipped out before November 2013 that are not compatible with the latest DSLR cameras will not operate.

[Updated Information] Operating conditions of the Nikon “Z7” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Nikon mount

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

We would like to share results of our further investigations regarding the operating conditions of the Nikon “Z7” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Nikon mount.

When SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses in the current product lineup, listed below, are used in combination with the Nikon “Z7” and their “Mount Adapter FTZ”, both AF and AE operate without any issues. Furthermore, lenses which incorporate Optical Stabilizer (OS) will work to maximum effect when both the lens’s OS and the in-camera stabilization are switched on simultaneously.

Phenomena particular to 4 lenses were confirmed after our announcement of September 28th 

After careful investigation, we confirmed some phenomena particular to 4 products listed below. Regarding a firmware update for the SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art, 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art and 85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, we are going to announce them at a later date.

■24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art [Phenomenon] It may occasionally stop recording while shooting video. [Future Course of Action] It is planned to be resolved by a firmware update.

■50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art   [Phenomenon] When starting to shoot with the subject completely out of focus, the response to the AF operation is intermittent. It is necessary to release several times or to turn the focus ring once to release. [Future Course of Action] It is planned to be resolved by a firmware update.

■85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art [Phenomenon] It may occasionally show overexposure when narrowing down the aperture from F5.6 while shooting. [Future Course of Action] It is planned to be resolved by a firmware update.

■APO 800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM [Phenomenon] Please focus using MF, since it is difficult to achieve sufficient focusing accuracy. [Future Course of Action] There is no plan for a firmware update.

When the lenses listed below are used, due to product specifications, the in-camera stabilization cannot be turned off. In addition, the Auto Power Off function cannot be used. Please manually turn the power [OFF] after shooting.
