It all depends upon the lens. Not all lenses can accept teleconverters, usually due to projecting rear elements incorporated into the individual lens design. With such lenses, manufacturers will either advise that a particular lens will not be compatible with a teleconverter or for some models may produce a custom matched model usually for that lens alone.

Which exact lens are you trying to fit to your Sigma 1.4x EX APO DG teleconverter?

Is it possible to convert a sigma lens to fit a canon body or by using an m42 adapter?


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Canon or M42 mount then there is no problem. If it has a Minolta mount, for example, then replacing the lens will be easier and just as cheap as changing the mount. If it has Nikon mount, you can buy adapters to fit it to Canon or M42 bodies.

I just purchased a Sigma 2.8 f=28mm for canon but I don't know if it will fit my Canon EOS 500 N (same as Rebel G) 35mm SLR film camera. Can you help with this question.


Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.

Matching 2 brands


Simga makes lenses to fit several different makes of camera bodies including Canon and Nikon. I'm assuming your Sigma lens has a Nikon mount, if so there are some adapters, but they may not work like you want - not all functions may work properly thru the adapter. For best results you should return or sell the lens and get one with the Canon mount.

X 2 converter


  1. with this combination of camera/lens you will not have AF when a x2 converter is applied! that is because in all canon cameras (except 1D series) there is no AF when the Aperture is smaller then F5.6.
  2. if you don't mind using MF, u need the sigma 2x EX DG Tele Converter.

Pentax K110D and Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX DG


The Penta K110D has a 1.5X crop factor so a 17mm lense would be the equivalent to 25.5mm (in 35mm standard), therefore may not give you a 103 angle view. You would not really notice that much difference between 17 and 18mm.
