Sigma Lens is locking up

I have a Sigma 17-70 and was using it with a Canon Digital Rebel XTi. I was using it to shoot and it was working fine, and all of a sudden it completely locked up. I have no idea what happened. It won't zoom completely in or out, it's stuck somewhere in the middle. The lens lock is not on.

    I haven't been to the beach with it so I don't think it could be sand. Thanks though!

    I'm sorry! I didn't mean to leave a negative rating, I didn't select any rating at all!

    I discovered it was a screw loose inside the lens. I took it to a authorized Sigma repair place and it was a one-day easy fix.

This could be a bit of sand in the lens gears.

    If I had said grit then would you have rated me as badly? You have given me a negative rating!

DS 126151 error


What kind of error? Err 99?
You mention DS 126151, that's the model number. This camera is mostly know as Canon EOS Rebel XTi? Also known as the EOS 400D or EOS Kiss Digital X.
If you are getting a Err 99 while shooting, try any other lens that will fit on your Canon. In most cases the aperture will become defect in these lenses. Not worth repairing if you ask me. One thing you could do, is shoot only at its maximum aperture. So that'll be F4.0 at 70mm and F5.6 at 300mm. That might work, but that might not be suitable in every situation.

Will Sigma 75-300 f/4-5.6 DL work on my rebel XTi


If the lens has a Nikon mount (as you imply in the post), then no, it will not fit. If it has a Canon mount, then yes, it will work fine on your Canon Rebel.

There is a minimal focusing distance for all lenses. If you move closer to the subject than that distance then the camera won't focus on it. Check you lens manual for minimal focusing distance. It is 11 inches for Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, for example.

Camera lens


Hey kgconstruct,
The lens description that your posting is categorized under is a 75-300 f/4-506 DL lens for Nikon AI. If this is correct then no this lens won't work on a Canon camera. I am assuming this isn't correct and the lens you have is for a Canon camera, and if this is true this lens should work on the XTI. If you’re thinking of buying this lens I would go to a local camera store that carries this Sigma lens and try it out first to make sure you like it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d


The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.

Lens Compatibility


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

Canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting


Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.
