How to mount 67mm thread lens to t4i body only canon


One side of the reverse adapter has a 67mm thread, the other side has a lens mount. Mount it to the camera body as if it were a lens. Bear in mind that it's intended to screw onto the front of a lens and then mounted onto a camera to put the lens onto the camera in a "backward" position.

Does my Sigma 28-105 mm Aspherical for film camera work on my Canon 5D Mark III?


If the Sigma lens mount is a Canon FD fitting then you can get an adapter FD to EF that will allow you to use the old lens in manual mode. If your camera isn't designed to take EF-s lenses then they will not fit on the camera. My EF-s lenses will not fit on my 6D.

Does Sigma 70-300mm works on Canon EOS 350D?


Sigma makes lenses with a variety of camera mounts. A lens with a Pentax mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon camera. Assuming you get the lens with the Canon mount, then it will work on the EOS 350D with full functionality.

Where can i buy a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL Macro AF Lens mount adapter for a canonEOS 500D


You can't, not as far as I know.

Getting functionally useful adaptors from any other brand to Canon EOS is difficult as the register distance from the sensor to the lens is the deepest of all current lens mounts. Adaptors therefore require expensive optical correction in order to preserve infinity focus ability and given that the adapted lens will still be substantially crippled most owners aren't prepared to pay for such an adaptor. In any case, the additional optical elements will reduce optical quality.

Due to similar electronics, it is possible to physically convert a Sigma mount lens to EOS by fitting an EOS lens bayonet but it's a skilled job requiring fabrication skills and even then there's no guarantee that the lens will communicate correctly with all EOS bodies. In practice, due to the scarcity of Sigma mount lenses the conversion is usually the other way around.

The XTi does not have a "full-frame" sensor, so vignetting should not be a problem with this lens.
