It does not fit without an adaptor, would not AF and is likely to be of low quality and not worth purchasing an adaptor for if you did want to use it.

My Sigma 100-300 f/4 EX APO didn't work with my 7D. Sigma was very easy to deal with, I sent the lens in to Sigma USA and they re-chipped it for free...

My Sigma 28-105 2.8-4 didn't work correctly with the A200 when using flash. Images were underexposed. Can be solved when TTL-Mode is activated manually in the camera. The A200 does not seem to switch to it automatically with this lens.
always on the need for improvement

Hi. You might like to add the Sigma AF (Beta) 60-200 1.4-5.6 zoom to your incompatibility list. It is a very nice lens, sharp, good colour and bokeh, but will work as a manual only on my A100. It is a very nice, heavily constructed metal lens that will work with the early Minoltas (5000/7000) but not the later models. Still makes a nice portrait lens if used in manual mode. It has the beta () symbol after the AF on the lens barrel. The serial number on mine is 2030273 and it dates from the mid-eighties.

Cheers

Jeff

My Tokina 70-210 (since sold with my 7000 body) did not work on my A300, the camera denied there was a lens attached.

No idea if serial numbers are significant but it was 8715813

I have a Tokina 70-210 SD which gives a no lens attached on my 5D, I don't have the serial no to hand (will edit when I get it)

I have had a Sig 24/2.8 for years. It worked on all the many film cameras I have owned and 5D/7d. I use it today very often on my A100...absolutely no problems. In fact it is one of my favorite primes.

I also have the 28-70 2.8-4 UC and have never experienced any compatibility issues. I use this lens when I might have concerns of it getting harmed in any way. Put the Body Armor on and use the Siggy. Good combo for rough use.

First: welcome david2.

I also have a Sigma Super-Wide II 1:28 f=24mm Multi-Coated Lens Made in Japan Dia 52 with serial number 5007877. Works like a charm and is, just like georgiaboy, one of my favorite lenses.

There was some talk about the slot drive slot being not wide enough, so that the mechanical link between body and lens wasn't complete - might be your problem also, just widen the slot.

I have the Sigma 180/2.8 Macro and when I found it at a store they told me it was incompatible. But I tried it on a 5D and a A700 and it worked fine so I bought it. Not sure if they were working off some sort of list or what...
Gallery A7S, A7Rii, Batis 18/2.8, 25/2 Sony 35/2.8, 55/1.8, 90/2.8M, 24-105/4, Minolta 135STF, 200/2.8 Blog

I have the Sigma 70-210 f4-5.6 UC-II (listed as incompatible) and the older Sigma 70-210 f4-5.6 UC (not referenced here). I am original owner of the UC-II (used on a film 3xi) and got the second one from a pawn shop in a package deal. Tested out both tonight for fun.

Both lenses worked properly on both a KM5D and A900. Nothing spectacular, decent sharpness (seems sharper on the A900 than 5D), colors slightly more muted than Minolta glass. Did not modify the UC-II in any way.

I was wondering if the lens worked with your camera body. The reason I ask is that I have a chance to get one but I don't want to waste the money if it won't run with my Sony A350. Thanks in advance.

Joe, I tested a Sigma 70-300 DL macro super for a few weeks, it worked fine on my a100 and a700 and was (to my eye) optically a little better than Sony's 75-300: at least as sharp at 300 and less prone to CA. Not very practical for macro though (heavy and with an odd mechanism for enabling/disabling the macro switch). A great bargain price-wise but definitely not as sharp as the Min 300 f4 I got later on, so I didn't hang on to the Sigma DL in the end.
a450, a500, a65, a7, 700si & other 35 mm bodies, Sig 15-30, sam 30 2.8 macro, Pentax 40 2.8 pan, Sig 70 f2.8 macro, Vivi 90 f2.8 macro, Mino 100-400 apo, 300 f4, 500 f8, 600 f4

Thank you very much for the information. I missed out on the Sigma lens but was able to get a Quantaray 70-300 mm f/4.0-5.6 for next to nothing and from what I understand they are pretty close to the same lens, please correct me if I am wrong. Hopefully it will work on my Sony well enough to get me by until I can afford a really nice lens.

Joe
