I have a Sigma 70-300 mm lens 1:4-5.6 DL. it works on my EOS 450D does it also work on an EOS 500D hoping for a reaction


Here's Sigma's Webpage. You should call them at 1-800-896-6858 to verify this lens will work, as I can not find a listing for the "DL" lens you have.

My initial response is that if it fits the 450D, it is a Canon mount and should work about the same on the 500D assuming both cameras have the same size sensors.

Again, a free call to the manufacturer is going to provide the best possible information on compatibility issues between this lens and various Canon camera bodies.

Good luck!

According to Sigma, your lens should be fully compatible with your camera although there will be the usual 1.6x crop factor as the lens is designed for a full frame sensor. This would not cause your Err 01 fault though so you should return the lens to your dealer for refund or exchange. Failing that, consider claiming on Sigma's one year international warranty. The warranty is ONLY valid if your lens was supplied with the Sigma Warranty card. All new Sigma lenses supplied through official resellers include the Warranty Card. You can find more details about where to send your lens for a warranty repair by clicking here.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

It is asking you to clean the electronic points on the lens that come into contact with the camera body when the two are fitted together, in order to power the lens functions.

If other lens work ok, try giving the lens electronic contact point on the mounting plate a light rub with a dry cotton-bud, may be a fingerprint .
