Question about Sigma AF 28-200 Lens

1 Answer

Chip to lens

Hello, I could not find my lens,so I entered different one in the product field. Is it possible to get a chip to lens Sigma AF 70-210mm f/2.8 APO (Canon)? Lens is intended for mm film reflex camera ( 35mm SLR camera) and does not work on digital camera (dSLR). There is a new version but it would not work with my older lens. I need my lens work on dSLR and I know that Sigma does some changeable chips. The chip is denoted by  "EIS906B" but I am not sure if I can get it as I was told then it is not produced any more. Thank you for your advice.

I have error 01 on my Quantary 70-300 lens, I have tried to clean it, and different appitures as suggested, however I am still getting error01. Any other suggestions?


If the lens is compatible with your Canon, the only thing I can think of is a defective chip or a bad connection inside the lens.
just bring it back to the shop you bought it.

Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

From working with third party lenses in the past what I've found is that Canon doesn't give up the "chip" technology so the older lens can not talk to the newer cameras. I suspect that Canon does this to promote their lenses over the competition. You might be able to send the lens to Sigma and have them re-chip it and have a great lens again.

I have the sigma 70-300mmD i just bought for my nikon D40 and i am having trouble with the auto focus. it will not autofocus can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong and or where i can download the...


The Nikon D40 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens having one. This Sigma lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera having one. Nikon designates lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S, Sigma calls theirs HSM.

Will a SIGMA 70-300 f4 DL MACRO LENS fit on a CANON EOS 20D?


Assuming you get the lens with a Canon mount, yes. Sigma makes lenses to fit a variety of makes, but each one has a different mount. A lens intended for a Nikon, for example, will not fit a Canon.

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

Got Sigma dl 75-300mm


Every lens made after 1996 with AF is made for that particular body. Hence the reason many small camera stores when bust, carrying a huge inventory for the 6 or 8 different cameras out there.

My sigma 28-200 have problem with shutter problem my canon eos 450 cannot set more than f3.5 bcoz there are error01


All auto-focus lens have some sort of 'chip' inside .. Sigma 'reversed engineered' Canon's chip - however every time Canon brings out a new camera there is a chance the Sigma lens chip won't work (this is why you see lots of Sigma lens on eBay :-) )

IF you can prove you purchased your lens direct from an authorised Sigma dealer, Sigma will update the chip for free .. otherwise they charge about £35 .. you pay postage in both cases ..

Quantaray 28-200mm Aspherical IF


Usually.
Quantary Lenses are made by either Sigma or Tamron That lens was usualy made buy sigma. the way to tell is to take it to a camera store that sells 28-200 lenses and hold your lens next to the sigma or tamron. They will look the same just with a different name. one of the main difference's between the store brand quantaray and sigma is that alot of time the metal bearings used in the name brand are replace with plastic ones for the quantaray. I tell you that just so you know why the sigma lenses cost more.

you can also find broken ones on online auction sites and use them for parts.


hope you get it working,
Caleb

It sounds like a CPU chip incompatability issue. Sigma has that problem sometimes but are usually very good about rechipping at no cost (at least for Nikon-mount lenses). What did they say when you asked them?
