Sigma - Compatibility Issue with Canon 5D Mark IV

canon-5d-mark-iv-image

There is no major issue, as we all know Canon all DSLR camera comes with built-in lens correction tool that corrects Peripheral illumination, Chromatic aberration and Diffraction once the shot is captured. Every Canon EOS camera have lens database inside and apply lens correction algorithm only when native Canon lenses mounted on it.  Lens correction tool doesn’t work with third party lenses and the second thing don’t try to adjust focus ring while lens is on AF mode, Manual Override not available with Sigma lenses.

From Sigma

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

Please find the following notes on the usage of SIGMA interchangeable lenses for EOS, when attached to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that is released on September 8th.

  • MO (Manual Override) function is unavailable with this camera (Full-time Manual function can be offered).
  • When using a SIGMA interchangeable lens for EOS, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, as “Lens Correction” functions of the camera, such as Peripheral illumination correction, Chromatic aberration correction, Diffraction correction and Distortion correction are not supported.*

* If those functions are activated, the performance of lenses may not be accurate.
* This is not only for EOS 5D Mark IV, but also for other camera bodies with the same function.

We appreciate your continued support for our company and products.

Should Canon and Nikon Announce Medium Format Mirrorless Camera?

Photokina is over and the biggest announcement of the show according to me is Fuji GFX50S (announcement page here). To compete against Fuji GF50S and to save DSLRs & Lenses sale they both should announce a Medium Format as well as Fullframe sensor based Mirrorless system cameras.

Losing battle ground silently

If you don’t have a product then people will get it from a different manufacturers. If you want to get a fullframe mirrorless camera you have only one option – select a camera from Sony A7 series.  And If we want to get a Compact Medium format mirrorless camera then we have Hasselblad X1D or Fuji GFX 50S as option in our front.

us-interchaneable-camera

The the graph you see above clearly shows us how Sony emerged as the leader of Mirrorless camera industry. The stats taken from market research firm NPD. According to the research team Sony has emerged as the un-disputed #1 mirrorless camera maker for the last four years running.

Fact of the matter is Digital Camera do attracting more investors and young age photographers. Due to less availability of quality Mirrorless and Affordable options in CanNikon FF group user moving towards Sony and other third party manufactures.

Ignorance is bliss – Until you hit the ground

Nikon does have (only 1) Medium Format Lens Patents (See hereArticle published at Sep 2013). And surprisingly Canon isn’t interested in Medium Format. Again, Just like fullframe mirrorless market ruled by Sony. It’s look like in upcoming years either Fuji, Hasselblad or Sony will take over the Medium format Mirrorless Market.

Fuji Medium Format Camera

Fuji GFX50S is the name of recently announced mirrorless medium format camera of Fuji. Fuji cut down the mirror to make the camera size more compact and portable as well as to stop the 15% resolution loss caused by the Mirror. After evaluating all the possible consequences they have decided to make a Mirrorless Medium format camera.

Size Matters

The Fuji  GFX50S Sensor size is 1.7X larger than the current Fullftame cameras like Canon 1DX Mark II and Nikon D5 and approx 4times more than APS-C Sensor based Camera.

Fuji Made Sensor

As many websites (including us) were speculating that Fuji will use same sensor as of Pentax 645Z or Hasselblad X1D (both camera shares same Sony made 50 MP FF Sensor), but Fuji surprised us when they said the Sensor is completely new and made by Fuji engineers.
