sigma 85mm & k-1

Hi guys,

Got my K-1 a couple of weeks ago but yet not quite acquainted with it I have purchased a Sigma 85mm, 1.4 DG HSM but when mounted on the body it still shoot crop. According to Sigma it should shoot full frame when used on K-1. But it does not seem so

Is there some settings on the camera I need to change or something?

Thank you all in advance.

Regards
Hamid

Shoots FF on my camera. What is your crop set to?

I think the K-1 has a Menu where you can choose FF, Auto or crop mode, no?

This is correct.

Press Menu, Camera setting menu, page 2, option 2 'crop' allows the selection to be made.

You have to manually set the camera to FF mode, rather than auto. That's what Sigma said in a recent bulletin.
