Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I recently bought a sigma 28-80 3.5-5.6 ii macro for my nikon d5300, the lens will not mount to the camera body. I noticed some plastic pieces had broken off the backs of lens. Have I purchased a defective lens or will this lens not couple with my nikon d5300?

Here are 3 pictures of a Sigma lens for Nikon. Your lens should look about the same. Could be a little less connection points, but notice there is no plastic.

SOURCE: lens for Nikon D60

I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

SOURCE: my nikon d60 does not recognize my sigma 105mm lens

Hi I had a similar problem with a 50mm prime and I fixed it by locking the aperture ring on the lens in place.

Is it possible to convert a sigma lens to fit a canon body or by using an m42 adapter?


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Canon or M42 mount then there is no problem. If it has a Minolta mount, for example, then replacing the lens will be easier and just as cheap as changing the mount. If it has Nikon mount, you can buy adapters to fit it to Canon or M42 bodies.

It depends on the lens mount. Sigma makes varieties of their lenses for different camera mounts. A lens with a Canon mount will be compatible with any current Canon camera. A lens with a Nikon mount will be compatible with a Nikon camera. Any one lens can fit one but not the other.

Fitting a Sigma Lenset to Nikon D40


You have to make sure you bought the sigma lens with a NIKON mount. Sigma makes a Sigma mount as well as a Canon mount, of course neither of those mounts will work with your camera. Also you must also make sure your lens is the Sigma 70-300 HSM (/Hyper Sonic Motor) or it will not AF on the D40. I just bought this lens from Abes of Maine and I love it on my D40.
