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.

Nikon N65 won't take a picture

If you have the lens set to the lowest number, you should be seeing a FEE error on the display. The lens needs to be set to the highest number, typically 16 or 22.

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.

I have a Sigma 70-300 DL Telephoto lens. I had it for my Canon Rebel SLR and now I have a Canon Rebel DSLR...When using it with both cameras. There seems to be a focus problem I can not zoom and get the...


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.

What does it mean when the camera has F----?

The F-- indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. There are several possible reasons for this.
  • The lens simply lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. Old Nikon lenses don't have the electronic circuitry for this.
  • The contacts aren't making contact. Try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body. Also try jiggling the lens once it's mounted.
  • Either the lens or the camera (or both) are malfunctioning. Try a different lens on the camera if you can. Try the lens on a different camera if you can. It is possible that one or the other needs service.

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.

You might not have your lens set to the minimum aperture setting (the largest number) if it is a non-G lens.

Lens stuck on camera in wrong position

It may need professional help to remove it safely. If you try too hard to remove it yourself, either the aperture arm on the lens and/or the camera will get bent or damaged.
