How well do non Canon lenses work with DPAF?

Recommended Posts

In the market for a new lens and some of what Sigma has out there looks very very nice, but I am worried that AF performance with DPAF will go down the drain when going that route. Anyone with experience?

You mean that even the 18-35 1.8 is loud when auto focusing?


I don't have that lens, but when I did research, it seemed to be just as noisy as my other sigma lenses. I have had 2x Sigma 35mm 1.4, a 24mm 1.4 and their 50mm 1.4, they all have a loud clicking type sound until you stop down to f/4 or something. Many people use that lens on MF with peaking. I use the 1DX ii, it focuses extremely fast, I am sure my camera makes lenses a tad louder than something like a 6D. 

If you don't use something like the 1DX and use a shotgun mic, without the subject moving a ton, you should be fine.
