The secondary small mirror that guides the light from the lens to the sensors ( sensors sit at the bottom of the mirror box , underneeth the main mirror ) may be out of position. To check : take lens off and gently lift the main mirror half way up ( pushing up ) and see if the secondary mirror is dangling ( which it should not be doing ). Correct 1) reingage spring 2) reingage hinge.

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.

Auto focus does not work in creative modes


That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right. 8f5da8f.jpg
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. 7528356.jpg
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.

I have a Canon Rebel XT/EOS 350D. For some reason when I try to view the AF, ISO or WB menus they are not displaying. Can you help?


You need to set your Mode Dial to one of the modes in the creative zone (i.e. one of the modes: P, Tv, Av, M or A-DEP) in order to access the AF, ISO and WB menus. Those menus are not displayed when the Mode Dial is set to one of the Basic Zone modes.
Hope this helps /Chris

Make sure you have the switch on the side of the lens that has the options "MF" and "AF" (or something like that) switched to "AF"
