The introduction of the MC-11 Mount Converter/Lens Adapter was a hint of thing to come, but now the President of Sigma Mr. Kazuto Yamaki has confirmed that Sigma will begin producing full frame lenses for E-mount.

Digital Focus – We saw this year many manufacturers launch on Sony FE mount. After Zeiss and its ranges Batis and Loxia ago today Samyang (with autofocus lenses) and Tokina with its new range Firin .You launched earlier this year the adapter ring MC-11 for EF mount . What are the early returns on, and will you launch EF mount goals for Sony A7?

Mr. Kazuto Yamaki – Our adapter ring worked very well in the first months following the announcement.Unfortunately, thereafter, it was less the case. The number of people using an adapter ring is quite limited.
I think the EF mount is one of the most important in this industry. I think Sony will be one of the manufacturers number 1 in this category of devices thanks to their sensor technology.

The future of EF mount is beaming. So yes we will come out of EF mount objectives in the future. I personally bought a A7R II to understand the performance and capabilities of the Sony hybrids. I normally use our own devices with the Foveon sensor, but from time to time I buy new innovative devices ( “game changing cameras”). Just a few years I had purchased a Canon EOS 5D.

Sony will have no shortage of quality glass going forward for E-mount.

    This is just awful translation, EF mount is for Canon’s full-frame lenses, FE mount is Sony’s full-frame sensor, the two terms are not interchangeable.

    • I know, but that’s what the summary is for. I don’t touch the translation because it could be a typo I’m unaware of etc and a quote is a quote. Also you would be surprised how many people outside of the Sony world don’t understand the whole FE/E mount deal, which is why I simply say full frame E-mount.

      Whenever I talk to someone that’s never shot Sony or that’s new to Sony they only know E-mount and FE causes confusion.
