Sigma has updated its previous statement on its lenses’ compatibility with the Nikon Z7, confirming that both AF and AE functions operate as normal.

Sigma also adds that lenses with Optical Stabilizer technology will also be fully compatible on the Nikon Z7.

The company also released a list of all the Sigma lenses that are fully compatible with the Nikon Z7. The new statement reads:

[Updated Information] Operating conditions of the Nikon “Z7” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Nikon mount

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

We would like to share results of our further investigations regarding the operating conditions of the Nikon “Z7” and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Nikon mount.

When SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses in the current product lineup, listed below, are used in combination with the Nikon “Z7” and their “Mount Adapter FTZ”, both AF and AE operate without any issues.
Furthermore, lenses which incorporate Optical Stabilizer (OS) will work to maximum effect when both the lens’s OS and the in-camera stabilization are switched on simultaneously.
