Re: why?!

It may work at first but its not compatible with the camera. try adjusting the connector and see what happens.

Error 99 with a Canon 300D (original rebel) and Tamron XR Di II 18 to 200 mm lens. Occurs when lens is zoomed out. Does not happen with other lenses (Canon 18-55 kit, Canon 75-300). Cleaning contacts on...

Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

What nikon camera will this mount to

Tamron is a third party lens manufacturer and make lenses to fit all popular makes of cameras both film and digital. I'm sure the top two would be Canon and Nikon. So if the lens you have there is a Nikon Mount it will fit Nikon Auto Focus cameras both film and digital

Quantaray lenses

I bet they are not AF lenses. There are adapters that add the AF contacts to "fool" the camera but increase the zoom. You can get used lenses from many "on line" camera stores with warranties for a few months.

Aperture wont adjust on my canon rebel xt

If it's an older lens, for EOS film cameras, Quantaray might upgrade it free - contact your local Ritz Camera store ( it's imported by Ritz ) or find a repair center for Quantaray online.

Canon rebel xt error messages

I have the same problem. So far I've contacted Sigma (I believe this is the company that manufacturers the Quantaray lens for Ritz) and they requested I send them a photo of the lens. I just googled sigma lens to find sigma support. I will update you all with any response I may get.

Sigma 28-300 3.5-6.3 won't focus

Did it ever work on this camera?
I have seen some Sigma lenses that are auto focus on canon film cameras but then when put on the digital they dont work right. If you have used it on this camera then make sure the lens is clean.sometimes dirt on the front wil make it try focusing on the dirt. Next try focusing in manual focus to make sure the focus is working. Then take the lens off and then put it back on and make sure it clicks into place.

Let me know if none of those things work. also make sure to try focus on something close and somthing far away.

let me know how it works,

Canon error codes

I have a 100-300mm Quantaray lense and have the exact same issue. I spoke to Canon about this and they suggested cleaning the contacts. That helps for 1 picture. You would have to remove the lense and rub the contacts between each picture. Not a good plan. They suggested the Quantaray may have a fix or repair for the lense and to contact them. However they have no listed 800 number nor any website. only other suggestion is to contact a camera shop and see if they can service the lense. Only other option is to replace it.
