Sigma Announces Lens Mount Conversion Service (and 4-year warranty)

Posted by on Thursday August 1, 2013 | Uncategorized

Sigma18_35MountIf you’ve considered changing up your camera system but are too heavily invested in lenses to do so, Sigma may have the perfect solution to break the bond you have to one brand or another. That is, if your optical stash includes lenses from Sigma’s Global Vision line.

Beginning September 2, 2013, Sigma Corporation of America will offer a fee-based lens mount conversion service for its Global Vision lenses. As the name implies, the company will change out the current mount for a mount of your choice, as long as Sigma makes that particular lens for the mount requested. DSLR mounts include Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sigma and Sony. But Sigma hasn’t forgotten about the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera users among us, who can have their lenses converted to Micro Four Thirds or Sony E-mounts (again, as long as the requested lenses are currently available with those mounts).

The full story is now on PDNOnline’s Gear page.
