There is a website devoted to Err99: http://www.richardsnotes.org/archives/2005/04/29/50mm-lens-contact-points/

I have a Quantaray 100-300 which also displays an Err99 when used in automatic mode. The only way I can use this lens is in AV mode and select the widest aperture.

Sigma 170-500mm f.5-5.6. fit on nikon d 200 ??? and i wild like to how good is this one 170-500mm


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it is fully compatible with the D200.

If you mean the 150-500mm, you can see a review at
http://www.popphoto.com/gear/2008/12/sigma-150-500mm-f5-63-dg-os-hsm-apo-af

In general, Sigma supertelephoto zooms have a pretty good reputation. However, only YOU can decide whether a particular lens is "good enough" for you.

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.

My lens is locked and i cannot zoom


I had the same problem with the same lens. Over a few months it got lose, eventually getting so sloppy that it dropped if my 40D was held down. 10 days ago it jammed and the zoom was locked. I sent it to Canon and received it back in a week and it is now like new. Please don't try and fix it leave it to the experts at Canon. Not sure what the cost was as mine was still just under warranty
I think that this is a common problem with this lens and beleive that something in the lense works loose and eventually drops into the mechanism.

500mm lens will not function with my Canon digital Rebel XT.


This lens will work with Canon cameras. I use one on my Canon 30D. It is a fixed F8 you can not use auto or green box because there are not any contacts on the lens to talk to the camera. Its back to the basics manual adjust shutter and ISO to the get a correct exposer. DEFINITLY NOT A POINT AND SHOOT LENS.

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:
Canon 20D Firmware Download
Hope this helps!

Error report 99 on my Canon 20D


take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. or Before I reset it, take off the lens and put it back on.
i heard that some have problems with the lexar cards.
http://www.lexar.com/support/cust_advisory.html
in short, format the card every so offten in the camera and see if that fixes it.
also
try a firmware upgrade if your 20D has highest version get this at canon website
