From Sigma:
 
Since 2013, The SIGMA Corporation has been offering a “Mount Conversion Service” for SIGMA’s Global Vision (Contemporary, Art and Sports) lenses. With this service, the mount and key components inside your lenses can be replaced, adjusted and optimized for another camera mount.
 
Since the introduction of this service, we have maintained the cost which was set originally to ensure the best possible customer support. This service requires not only a simple mount replacement, but also a detailed assessment of the individual lenses we receive from our customers.
 
Due to the growing complexity of the conversion service and the increasing cost of required parts, we are having to revise the cost of our Mount Conversion Service.
 
We appreciate your understanding and continued support for our company and products.

New Products
 
SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art
 
Stunning resolution and clarity for a breathtaking visual experience — a razor-sharp macro lens joins the Art line
 
The new SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art lens is designed to prioritize optical performance. In the standard to mid-telephoto range, it delivers stunning resolution and incredible clarity that greatly exceed expectations for a macro lens. Photography enthusiasts will recall a certain legendary, razor-sharp macro lens—the SIGMA MACRO 70mm F2.8 EX DG—and be glad to learn it is available in a new form, updated with outstanding Art line quality.
 
SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art
 
Zero distortion. The ultimate 14-24mm wide-aperture zoom lens. SIGMA is introducing the 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art as the ultimate ultra-wide-angle zoom. While minimizing distortion, this lens offers outstanding F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range and delivers top-level image quality at every focal length and every shooting distance. For these reasons, it is the definitive wide-aperture ultra-wide-angle zoom lens.
 
SIGMA 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art
 
Introducing the “bokeh master”—featuring incredible resolution and designed for full-frame sensors, this is the longest focal length of the Art line’s F1.4 lenses
 
Since introducing its first SIGMA Global Vision F1.4 lens in 2012, the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, SIGMA has been adding wide-aperture F1.4 options to the lineup. SIGMA has designed all of these lenses to offer minimal optical aberration and deliver incredible resolution and stunning contrast. The SIGMA 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art has earned its place as the flagship of the F1.4 Art line lenses, prioritizing image quality above all to fulfill the promise of the line, delivering truly amazing optical performance.
 
New Product Features
 
SIGMA launches seven interchangeable Art lenses for Sony E-mount cameras with full-frame sensors
 
While offering the same high-performance optical design as other lenses in the Art line, the new Sony E-mount models will feature a newly developed control algorithm that optimizes the autofocus drive and maximizes the data transmission speed. In addition, these lenses will be compatible with Sony’s Continuous AF (AF-C) and high-speed autofocus, which are not addressed by MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11.
 
The lineup will include the Art line set of seven prime lenses covering 14mm to 135mm. It will also include two models that SIGMA will be exhibiting at CP+ 2018: 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art and 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art (launch date TBD). Further, SIGMA plans to introduce additional Sony E-mount models in the Art line going forward.
