This news has been floating around the web for a couple of days now, but the reason for Sigma’s unusual count down website has finally been revealed.
PhotoRumors broke the news a few days ago, that Sigma is releasing a new mount conversion service which will be FREE. You’ll be able to send your Sigma lenses into Sigma and they’ll convert it to any of the available mounts. Kind of a cool idea with all the switching going on between Nikon and Canon at the moment.
It’s not completely free however you’ll need to pay for shipping and handling to Japan which is likely to cost somewhere between $80 and $240.
