Question about Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 DL Macro Super Lens for Canon-EOS

1 Answer

I´ve been trying to use my Quantaray 70-300 mm lenses with my Canon EOS 450D. It gave me Err01 message (communication fault), I cleaned the lenses and it started taking the pictures but one at a time, and it was necessary to restart the camera. Is there any solution for that problem?

Canon leads the current world market in lenses with their L-series lenses using fluorite rather than other manufactures use of glass. however, they do not make money when we buy 'other' brands of lenses and have kept a certain amount of their body to lens, coding as propriatary. the problem you stated is a common complaint with all second manufactured lenses and the only real solution is to put a canon lens on a canon body.

I recently bought myself a very good CanonESO 50D. Canon DS 126211 serial number 0620301416 Since I only bought the camera, I needed to get Canon compatible lenses and was looking for a 70-300mm. I bo


Almost all early Quantaray lenses (and Sigma lenses, Sigma made Quantaray) in the Canon EOS mount will show error messages on Canon digital cameras (but still work fine on older EOS film cameras). usually err99 but err01 also. There is no DIY fix and Sigma ran out of update parts years ago. Current production lenses and Canon made lenses will not have this problem. This lens would only work for someone shooting EOS film cameras with no intention of "upgrading" their system to digital Canon cameras in the future.

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


Hi

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!

What does error 01 mean


Error 01: A communication problem between the lens and the body. Try cleaning the the area between the objective/Lens and the body. If that doesn't work, try another lens. If that doesn't work, try the first lense in another body, and if that works, it's most likely the body that's broken.

Have a brand new EOS 100D with Canon image


Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.
