next PZ lens test report: Sigma 24-105mm f/4 HSM DG OS | A
"Involvement with one or two lenses" doesn't make a rumor untrue - it remains a rumor, though. And the other thing to judge as "sillier" - is that necessary? Neither you nor me can prove such rumors as wrong or right or just misunderstood information.

Sigma employs around 1000 persons, Nikon 24.000 + 5500 "non-consolidated" in rough numbers. Those numbers alone bring enough doubts into that rumor, but of course, Nikon is also involved in other optical projects and makes a lot more cameras than Sigma in aspects of various types and output quantities. Just to point that out: I do not care, who is manufacturing a good, reliable, sharp lens with a nice bokeh for my camera, if it matches the camera. There's no "pure" Nikon, shutters are from Copal and sensors from Sony or Aptic or Aptia, I even don't recall that name. And there's no proof that 100% "own stuff" makes a better system.

As well as the rumor "Nikon wants to make life for third party lenses difficult" - there are two sides of this medal. As a camera manufacturer I would not feel an obligation to help my competition, especially not the ones making partly better lenses than my own company.

Anyway, I keep in mind, this is the Canon department of the PZ forum. I was just searching Markus' comment about "the brick" and didn't look carefully enough. For further observations with my Nikon version I'll wait until he finishes his test.
