Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DL Aspherical IF Hyperzoom Autofocus Lens for canon slr compatible with Canon t3i dslr


Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

Will a SIGMA 70-300 f4 DL MACRO LENS fit on a CANON EOS 20D?


Assuming you get the lens with a Canon mount, yes. Sigma makes lenses to fit a variety of makes, but each one has a different mount. A lens intended for a Nikon, for example, will not fit a Canon.

Will the sigma 75-300mm 1.4 5.6 fit in a nikon d80


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, yes.

Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras. Different manufacturers use different lens mounts, and they are not interoperable. A lens with a Canon mount will not fit onto a Nikon body, for example.

Hi,

The original DL lens was designed for non-digital application and Sigma released the DG version that was optimized for digital bodies. That said, the lens should still function to a certain extent on both and function normally on your wet film SLR.

My first suggestion would be to check the contacts on the lens and camera. Give them a good clean with a pencil eraser being careful that nothing goes inside the camera body whilst doing it.

If this fails to make any difference than the next thing would be to try the lens on a different body. The fact that the lens isn't performing correctly on two bodies leads me to think it is a lens problem but it's good to eliminate the bodies.

If this fails to make any difference then the last thing is to get it professionally looked at. Most local camera shops would do this for you. Be wary though that repair may cost more than the lens and it might be the right time to upgrade to a nice new lens to get the most out of that new DSLR!

Hope this helps, if it does please rate my help.

Thanks

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

Got Sigma dl 75-300mm


Every lens made after 1996 with AF is made for that particular body. Hence the reason many small camera stores when bust, carrying a huge inventory for the 6 or 8 different cameras out there.
