If the lens is the older type with a macro switch which has 2 screws holding it on to the lens it will not work.If it a super 70-300 you can put the camer on AV set iris to F22 if you have a stopdown button see if the lens stops down it ok if noe it will need a rechip or a new interuper

Is this lens compatible with a Canon Rebel XS digital camera


Sigma makes lenses with a variety of mounts to fit a variety of cameras. If the lens has a Canon mount then it will work with your XS. If has some other mount, Nikon for example, then it will not.

DS 126151 error


What kind of error? Err 99?
You mention DS 126151, that's the model number. This camera is mostly know as Canon EOS Rebel XTi? Also known as the EOS 400D or EOS Kiss Digital X.
If you are getting a Err 99 while shooting, try any other lens that will fit on your Canon. In most cases the aperture will become defect in these lenses. Not worth repairing if you ask me. One thing you could do, is shoot only at its maximum aperture. So that'll be F4.0 at 70mm and F5.6 at 300mm. That might work, but that might not be suitable in every situation.

From working with third party lenses in the past what I've found is that Canon doesn't give up the "chip" technology so the older lens can not talk to the newer cameras. I suspect that Canon does this to promote their lenses over the competition. You might be able to send the lens to Sigma and have them re-chip it and have a great lens again.

Does a sigma 70-300mm dl macro fits on a canon 500d camera?


Yes, if you get one with a Canon mount. Sigma makes their lenses available with a variety of mounts; a lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit on a Canon camera.

Will Sigma 75-300 f/4-5.6 DL work on my rebel XTi


If the lens has a Nikon mount (as you imply in the post), then no, it will not fit. If it has a Canon mount, then yes, it will work fine on your Canon Rebel.

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.
