In a clear effort to uncover new ways to motivate people to waste spend $5000…
Sigma issued a warning for some of their lenses. These lenses (see list below) are not fully compatible with the new Canon EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 77D, Rebel T7i and Rebel SL2. An error occurs during LIve View shooting when the “lens aberration correction” feature is turned on.
Dear Canon EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 77D, EOS Rebel T7i, EOS Rebel SL2 Users
Thank you for purchasing and using our products.
We have found that some SIGMA interchangeable lenses for CANON are not fully compatible with EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 77D, EOS Rebel T7i, EOS Rebel SL2.
When certain lenses are attached to these cameras and the “Lens aberration correction” function on these cameras is set to “Enable” for Live View shooting, an error would occur.
Please set the “Lens aberration correction” function of the cameras to “Disable” when using SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for CANON.
In addition, please also refer to other notice below, related to the usage of EOS mount SIGMA lenses on Canon cameras.
When the lenses listed below are used on EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 77D, EOS Rebel T7i, EOS Rebel SL2 and the “Lens aberration correction” function on the camera is set to “Enable” for Live View shooting, an error would occur.
- SIGMA 30mm F1.4 DC HSM | Art

- SIGMA 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM
- SIGMA 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

When using the SIGMA lenses for CANON, “Peripheral illumination correction”, “Chromatic aberration correction”, “Diffraction correction” as well as “Distortion correction” from the “Lens aberration correction” function of the camera are not supported. Therefore, we recommend you to set them to “Disable”.
If those functions are set to “Enable”, the performance of the lenses may not be accurate.
