May not be repairable, but try this, put a block of wood ( approx. 2in X 6in ) on the end that is pushed in, on a angle and while holding steady tap it out with a light hammer. It should pop the lens back to orig. position. Turn the focus ring and it should turn smoothly.
I have used this method many times with about 80% success rate.

Looking for a lense support for a quantaray 75-200 mm lense


what do you mean, lens support? - a 75-200 is not usually long enough to warrant this, if you mean a support bracket to mount the lens to a tripod, instead of a camera mounting point?

btw - sigma made all or most of the lenses for quantaray, so you might try looking this one up that way as well.

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?


If you can fit a filter to the front of your lens, you could buy a wide angle adapter like a 0.5, with the screw size that fits your filter screw.
But the wide angle front lenses, were designed for compact camera's and video camera's And although the 18 mm could become like 12 mm, but you will introduce colour fringing, distortion and more , that can't be corrected in normal programs like Lightroom.
I used a wide angle 0,5x (52mm) Hama and a tele 1,5x from cannon, on my video and later on my canon powershot G9, to find I was looking for a DSLR. I never was quiet pleased with the results.

And yes, sometimes you can't go farther back, but then I shoot 2 or 3 pictures.
Now I use a 12 - 24 on my Nikon DSLR. Now I get the pictures I want in a quality that fits.
My 0,5 and 1,5 are somewhere in a box. I payed the same (new) for both as for my Sigma 12-24. With the sigma I do have fun.

Hi, Everytime I zoom in or out my sigma lense 18-200, there something inside the lense that shakes. In the viewfinder, the image will shake everytime I zoom in or out the lense. It's a 2 months old...


There's nothing you can do to fix this yourself, it must be repaired professionally.

But as the lens is only two months old then it will be covered by Sigma's warranty so just send it to their service centre in your country for a free repair.

Note that if you live in the UK then you also have the right to return the item to the retailer for a full refund or an exchange under the terms of the Sale of Goods Act.

Does a "Sigma APO DG


It will fit, but you cannot guarantee that it will be fully compatible.

Third party lens manufacturers have to reverse engineer the patented technology of SLR manufacturers and then arrive at their own alternative and non-infringing solutions. As a result, their lenses are only ever guaranteed compatible with the SLR models available at the time they were manufactured, and if those cameras subsequently have firmware updates then all bets are off.

Sigma do offer an update service on many of their lenses, but it's not free and the lens has to go back to them for modifications.

The only lenses you can be sure of being compatible are the original Canon branded models.

I just purchased a Sigma 2.8 f=28mm for canon but I don't know if it will fit my Canon EOS 500 N (same as Rebel G) 35mm SLR film camera. Can you help with this question.


Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.
