Quote:I see, two China-experts debating None of us will change the working conditions there, right? You have no information about the place where the adapter is produced, neither have I. But the fellow hobby photog doesn't impress me much.
You would find it easier to convince it would have been wise to go Canon, if I want to use lenses on the Sony bodies, because now Sigma made an adapter capable of all AF modii, not only single AF (like the one from fellow hobbyist from Shenzhen ). I will not convince you not to buy in China, that's your decision and you will not convince me to buy an only half completed adapter (in terms of AF somebody else can experiment).
But together with Sigma's conversion service and their MC-11 adapter, for me it's cool to have the Sigma SD / Sony A7 option and abandon Nikon one day. Somehow Sigma knows <a class="bbc_url" href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/8547380272/cp-2016-sigma-mc-11-adapter-allows-dslr-lenses-full-range-of-af-modes-on-sony-bodies">how to make it work</a>
I wouldn't say I'm an expert, though I have been to Shenzhen many times and happen to know a thing or two about the place.
Granted sigma adapter looks nice, but you cannot use nikon glasses. I guess the adapter is useful to people who don't want to abandon Nikon
And making Nikkor lens Af on Sony is quite more difficult, that's why you don't see a lot of them. I like the inventiveness behind these individuals who make things happen, and wouldn't stereotype people if I could.
