Problems getting Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens to work with Canon xt

I have a Quantaray AF Tech 10 lens I had used with my Canon Rebel G and was told that I could use it with my Canon Rebel XT. When I try to use it, it won't let me do anything with it. The camera says err 99 and locks up on me. I've spoke with Quantaray's support and they said it should work with the Canon XT and to talk with Canon. I've spoke with Canon and they said there is a communication error. Can anyone help me? Is there somewhere that can update the software in the lens or anything I could get to correct this problem?

    Sigma just told me the lens is too old and there is no update for the lens.

I was wondering if lenses from a Canon 35mm camera will work with this camera?


When choosing a lens for your Digital Rebel XT, look for EF or EF-S on the lens. Film lenses with the EF designation will work on your digital camera, but AF or older lenses will not fit. Trying to force them on may damage your camera.
When using a film lens on a digital camera, there will be a 1.6x conversion factor. This means that a 50mm lens will be closer to a 70mm lens in reality.

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.


In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

Simga makes lenses to fit several different makes of camera bodies including Canon and Nikon. I'm assuming your Sigma lens has a Nikon mount, if so there are some adapters, but they may not work like you want - not all functions may work properly thru the adapter. For best results you should return or sell the lens and get one with the Canon mount.
