In a recent paper, Karaali et al. (2003) presented a new procedure for the photometric parallax estimation and extended it to the S loan photometry.
New colour-transformations for the Sloan photometry and revised metallicity calibration and equations for photometric parallax estimation
The correlation is rather high, i.e. [F e/H ]U BV = 0.9998[F e/H ]SLOAN − 0.006, confirming the procedure used for derivation of the revised metallicity calibration for the S loan photometry.
