Question about Sigma Zoom Telephoto 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Zoom Macro Super Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS

1 Answer

Broken zoom ring on sigma telephoto lens

I have an old sigma 70-300mm lens. Recently the telescopic zoom has ceased to function. It is now stuck at 70mm zoom and turning the ring does nothing, only the focus ring now turns. I took it to a camera shop and they quoted me 150 euros to send it off to sigma to fix it. For a lens that costs less than that it's not worth it, so I wish to fix it myself. Is this possible? could you provide me with any guidance as to how I could do this?

I am putting the sigma 500mm lense on my nikon d90 camera and i am getting a double ee error


Turn the aperture ring to its smallest opening (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you do so on a lens without an aperture ring.

How do you make af work on nikon 3000, using a sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 dg macro lens?


Unfortunately, you don't. The D3000 does not have an autofocus motor; it relies on the the lens having one. This particular Sigma lens, unlike its Nikon equivalent, does not have a motor.

Nikon calls their lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S. Sigma calls theirs HSM.

No lens lock on a Sigma 135-400DG, falls to full extension.


buy the glass that does not zoom via push pull - When they get old and sometimes right off the shelf new the push pull zooms get loose - the only fix is for you to have it serviced and even then it is a temporary fix as the very nature of what you do to use the zoom will ultimately cause the same problem to occur.

Purchase Zoom Lenses


Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.
