As per subject, has anyone used a Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM on the Minolta Maxxum 7/ A7 35mm film camera?

Sigma on their corp site notes that the only film cameras capable of using this lens are the Nikon F6 and Canon EOS-1V in their respective mounts.

However, from researching here it seems that HSM Sigma A Mount lenses function well on Maxxum 7's and converted Maxxum 9's.

I am curious if there is anyone who has actually attempted to pair this lens to an A7.

Cheers.

I tested this lens. Works fine with my 7, 5, 4 and 70. With the 9, 800si only manual focus, but the stabilization works.

From Maxxum 5
