A Sigma MC-11 firmware update just dropped. For Sony shooters, the MC-11 converts Canon AF mount to an E mount. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been using the converter with the Sigma 60-600mm. It works great.
All the native functions like Eye AF perform. Because it’s moving elements back and forth it’s not as fast as a G Master with the XD liner motors like the 24mm or 135mm.
While a bit slower, I’ve still been getting shots like this. The MC-11 costs about $249 on Amazon.
