Sigma Offers K-1-Related Lens Repair Service
Vows to repair affected lenses and damaged bodies
By PF Staff in Photo Industry News on May 27, 2016
Earlier this month, Sigma announced that a handful of its current and legacy lenses could cause a minor scratch above the lens mount when attached to the Pentax K-1.
Today, the company stated that it will start repairing affected lenses so that they no longer cause damage to the camera body. Owners of affected lenses are advised to contact their local Sigma distributor/service center to obtain the free service.
Sigma has also very graciously announced that it will offer to repair affected K-1 bodies (via authorized Pentax repair facilities) in the near future.
Despite the diminishing size of the Sigma K-mount lineup, Sigma has proved to handle this issue professionally, without neglecting its Pentax mount customers.
Sigma's recent Global Vision lens lineup has been met with highly positive critical reception, and the company continues to innovate through high-performance lens designs and zoom lenses with apertures wider than F2.8. Currently, only one full-frame Global Vision lens is available in the Pentax mount: the 35mm F1.4 "Art".
