Sigma press release:

[Updated Information] Operating conditions of the Canon “EOS R” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Canon mount

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

We would like to share the results of our further investigations regarding the operating conditions of the Canon “EOS R” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Canon mount.

When SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses in the current product lineup, listed below, are used in combination with the Canon “EOS R” and their “Mount Adapter EF-EOS R” or “Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R”, both AF and AE operate without any issues.
Furthermore, lenses which incorporate Optical Stabilizer (OS) will work with the OS function properly in effect.

In addition, when the Digital Lens Optimizer is switched [OFF], but “Peripheral illumination correction”, “Chromatic aberration correction” and “Distortion correction”, located within the in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function is switched [ON], the appropriate corrections can be achieved in accordance with the optical characteristics of each lens. This is applicable to DG and DC lenses from Contemporary, Art and Sports line listed below which were released after March, 2018, or those of which firmware has been updated to Ver.2.0 or later.
For other lenses, the Digital Lens Optimizer as well as the in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function cannot be used. Therefore, please set all to [OFF] before shooting.

Precautions for when DC lenses are used
When SIGMA’s DC lenses where the image circle is designed to match APS-C sized sensors are used, “1.6x (Crop)” will not be set automatically. Please select “1.6x (Crop)” manually. There are future plans for a firmware update to be announced at a later date that will make the DC lenses from Contemporary and Art line compatible with the “1.6x (Crop)”, to be set automatically, as well as Camera’s “Scene Intelligent Auto mode”.

Phenomena particular to 3 lenses were confirmed
After careful investigation, we confirmed some phenomena particular to 3 products listed below. Regarding firmware updates for these lenses, we are going to announce them at a later date.

SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art
・It may require the battery to be taken out once, if restarting the camera does not work when the lens is taken off the camera while the lens’s OS function is in operation.
・It may stop the focus driving from infinity to closer focus distance while shooting video with AF.

SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports
・It may require the battery to be taken out once, if restarting the camera does not work when the lens is taken off the camera while the lens’s OS function is in operation.

SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary 
・It may require the battery to be taken out once, if restarting the camera does not work when the lens is taken off the camera while the lens’s OS function is in operation.
・It may stop the focus driving from infinity to closer focus distance while shooting video with AF.

Other precautions
・AF can be used within the area of approximately 80% of the height and width of the sensor surface.
・For interchangeable lenses which are not from Contemporary, Art or Sports line, please focus using MF, since it may be difficult to achieve sufficient focusing speed and accuracy.
・Tele Converters cannot be used together.
・Having the focus mode switch set to MF does not let the lens stored automatically when the camera is turned off.
・Discontinued products have different operating conditions depending on each product and their shipping period. For details, please contact your nearest authorized SIGMA subsidiary / distributor.
