Introducing Lens Mount Conversion Service, only from SIGMA.
1st August, 2013, Singapore – SIGMA is going to start a new paid service “Mount Conversion Service”. It will enable Sigma to convert the mount of customers’ Sigma Art, Sports and Contemporary lenses by changing relevant parts of the mount. The necessary adjustment and optimization will be carried out at the Aizu factory for the new camera body with a different mount.
“Select the lens purely by its value, not by the camera body.”
We believe that a lens is not only such a key device for photographic expression, but also an important resource for photographers. It has been our hope to develop the lens system that is genuinely photographer-centered, and you can enjoy it for a longer period of time. As an experienced lens manufacturer that has been creating a diverse range of interchangeable lenses, our desire and know-how is crystalized in this unique paid service, “Mount Conversion Service”*. With this service, the mount of your owned SIGMA lenses can be converted to another mount system, depending on the specification of camera bodies.
*This service will be available from 2nd September, 2013.
Interchangeable lens camera systems appear to be superior in offering photographers more options, allowing them to change lenses freely and have more flexible photographic expression. Nevertheless, each interchangeable lens is limited with the specification of different camera systems. In other words, you can’t use those lenses if you change it from one type to another.
Although lenses are the key devices to create photographic expression, it is a shame that there is no system that purely sets the standard based on the functions and individual qualities of interchangeable lenses.
In this circumstance, SIGMA is going to start the “Mount Conversion Service” from September 2nd, 2013. Our goal is to provide more freedom for photographers so that they can select new camera bodies without worrying about the conventional limitation around the mount system of cameras, and keep on using their current lenses by adjusting them to fit with a new mechanism.
