It is a mount converter without any optics and the performance relies 100% on the lens itself. I tried it out at the Sigma booth and yes, basically, it converts any of those 18 Sigma lenses to a native lens. It works also for "older" Sony bodies, like A7, A7r and A6000, even NEX bodies. While I like the idea but those Sigma lenses are fairly big and heavy, even without the converter. On the flip side, the prices are definitely more attractive than the Sony counterparts and there are lenses out there that are absent in the Sony lens lineup as of now.
Too bad that it works only with those Sigma lenses . If it would work with Canon EF lenses, it would be very well, even more so received by a lot of Canon lens owners, including myself. Frankly, I would imagine an independent lens manufacturer, like Sigma, would come up with something like this, well, they did but I seriously doubt that Canon would do the same although I am more than convinced that they could do the same technically but that would indicate a sign of "defeat".... .
