History

    The new mount converter enhancing
    the extensibility of the L-Mount system.

    The SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-21 allows SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA’s CANON EF mount interchangeable lens owners to use their lens investment on L-Mount camera bodies. The converter allows more freedom of choice for L-Mount cameras, enhancing the extensibility of the L-Mount system.

    Features

    Effective use of lens investment

    * SIGMA’s CANON EF mount compatible lens

    Attaching the MC-21 to your collection of SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA’s CANON EF mount compatible lenses* allows them to be used as L-Mount system lenses, promoting the effective use of valuable lenses already owned.

    * See the list of compatible lenses below.

    44 interchangeable lenses available
    to be used for L-Mount cameras

    The MC-21 increases the number of interchangeable lenses manufactured by SIGMA that can be used with the L-Mount system by 44 lenses. Compatible with the autocrop function, mounting APS-C size image circle DC lenses to a camera body equipped with a 35mm full size sensor still allows immediate use for shooting.

    Simple interface

    Green light: the lens is compatible

    Orange light:the lens is compatible but requires firmware update

    Not lighting up: the lens is not compatible

    Whether the mounted lens is compatible or not is instantly visible from the color and the on/off of the MC-21’s built-in LED. The LED also notifies the user when a lens firmware update is available.

    Lens data is pre-loaded

    Running the data pre-loaded in the MC-21 for each lens by the special control program, autofocus and aperture control have been optimized. Regarding lenses to be released in the future, data for operating these lenses via the MC-21 will be stored in the lens. It means no firmware updates of the MC-21 will be required to use those new lenses. In addition, the MC-21 also supports correction functions of camera such as peripheral illumination, chromatic aberration of magnification, and distortion.

    Other features

    Fast and accurate auto focus

    High precision AF photography in AF-S mode is achieved.

    Note: Not compatible with AF-C mode.

    The inside surface of the barrel is covered with flocking to eliminate internal reflections.

    To prevent a reduction in lens performance due to internal reflections, the inside surface of the barrel is covered with flocking.

    Comes with a tripod socket

    Equipped with a socket for attaching the tripod*. Lenses not equipped with a tripod socket can be used by mounting the tripod to the MC-21.

    * The tool supplied makes attaching/detaching possible.

    Inclusion in Exif data

    Information such as lens type, focal length, F number, and other tags are embedded as Exif data in each image file.
