Change your mind? Change your mount.

Introducing Lens Mount Conversion Service, only from SIGMA.


Interchangeable lens camera systems were designed to offer photographers more options, allowing them to change lenses freely and have more flexible photographic expression. Nevertheless, each interchangeable lens is limited to the format of its specific camera system.

Lenses are the key tools to creating photographic expression; yet there is no single system that sets the standard making lenses compatible with all systems and allowing photographers to continue to enjoy the functions and qualities of the interchangeable lenses on which they have come to depend.   

SIGMA’s top priorities include creating lenses that ensure photographers get the shots they desire and that can be used for many years; we’ve has always understood that the lens is the tool that leads to true and personal photographic expression.

As an experienced lens manufacturer that has been creating a diverse range of interchangeable lenses, our desire and know-how is crystalized in this unique chargeable service, “Mount Conversion Service”*. With this service, the mount of the SIGMA lenses you currently own can be converted to the mount of another camera body.   

Our goal is to provide more freedom for photographers to select new camera bodies without the worry of having to discard their lens collection. SIGMA wants to help you keep those lenses for a long time no matter what camera system you’re using and can now change the mount of your lens by adjusting it to fit a change in your desired camera system. .

Have the freedom to create your own personal system
Have the right to keep your cherished lenses.
Try the SIGMA "Mount Conversion Service".

This service will be available from September 2013. More details will be published at this time.
