Sony a9: With Canon and Sigma Glass

For those looking for a larger lens selection at the long end at least the Sony a9 handles Canon glass fairly well using single point AF. Almost all reports seem to agree that the Sigma MC-11 is the most capable AF adapter for use on the Sony a9 at this time, but the Metabones could easily catch up with a firmware update.

Even Sigma lenses seem to work pretty well on the Sony a9, but obviously not as well as native glass. It’s always best to get E-mount glass when you can, but if you already own a lot of Canon glass then an adapter is probably a good investment. I wouldn’t go out of my way to secure Canon glass for use on the Sony a9 myself.

    If , as the headline claims, non native long glass can only autofocus with single point….that is very dissapointing

    It is a shame if we cannot utilize the new Sony AF system full with a real selection of long glass…. which Sony does not have

    • It seems from what I am seeing some will work in other modes, but not well… single point is fine for how many shoot, but single point is also a little slow on the a9 even with native glass.
