Can I use a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD with Nikon Z6? If not, what are some good alternatives?

I have read a lot of reviews and I cannot get an answer on whether the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD will work on my Nikon Z6. 

If this doesn't work, what other, more affordable options do I have at my disposal?
In short, I am looking for something affordable, that autofocuses (with the FTZ) and works with a Z series Full Frame camera (some tiny edge vignetting is ok).

I recently joined a local photo club so I want to experiment with this. Therefore, I do not need an expensive lens, just something to play around with and expand my toolbag.

My understanding says it would since you will use the FTZ adaptor. Doesn't the seller offering the lens allow a return and refund in case it doesn't work? Aren't there any shops near your location so you visit with the camera and adaptor and try it on the spot?

From the Sigma website:

* DC lenses have an image circle that covers APS-C size image sensors. Not for use on digital cameras having image sensors larger than APS-C size or on 35mm or APS film cameras, as vignetting will occur.

It will work. The camera should enter it's crop mode though so you will effectively only be using half of the sensor.
