Question about Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 for Digital SLR Cameras
Lens will no longer zoom all the way in or out. Won't move below 35 or above 70. Anyone know where I can find a service manual or can halle
It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.
(From Sigma lens literature) Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.

The zoom creep is an easy fix for Canon. I really do not recommend trying to tighten it yourself, since that would void your warranty.
It is usually free to tighten the zoom ring.

They where rechipping (some year ago). You can still use that lens but in AV mode. The new Canons are incompatible with the old Sigmas regarding aperture. If the machine needs to change it it will ALWAYS return a error 99. If the lens is on a bigger F stop you first need to use an old Canon (35mm) to open the aperture to the max (smaller F stop). Then you can use the lens but only in AV mode.

the string is a felt dust stopper if you take off the rubber zoom grip you will see black tape peel off the tape and the base of the zoom ring will slide off just remove the rest of the felt clean the barrels and put back it will be ok without the felt you can stick back the part of the zoom ring with tape
