    Before you start, consider the other end of the process. Do you have a lens collimator and other gear necessary to ensure you get the lens aligned so it works properly? If not, you may as well use a sledgehammer; the photographic results will be similar.

Hey kgconstruct,
The lens description that your posting is categorized under is a 75-300 f/4-506 DL lens for Nikon AI. If this is correct then no this lens won't work on a Canon camera. I am assuming this isn't correct and the lens you have is for a Canon camera, and if this is true this lens should work on the XTI. If you’re thinking of buying this lens I would go to a local camera store that carries this Sigma lens and try it out first to make sure you like it. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

They where rechipping (some year ago). You can still use that lens but in AV mode. The new Canons are incompatible with the old Sigmas regarding aperture. If the machine needs to change it it will ALWAYS return a error 99. If the lens is on a bigger F stop you first need to use an old Canon (35mm) to open the aperture to the max (smaller F stop). Then you can use the lens but only in AV mode.

SOURCE: Error 99 with a Canon

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!

Might be that the aperture is stuck and you need to get the lens repaired (might cost more than a new lens.) Or it might just be bad contacts. Clean the contacts and try another lens before asking Canon or dismantling the lens.

I need a new lens for my camera were can i buy it!

The changing of your lens is not something which is an easy project.
If this is a point and shoot camera, the removing of the lens requires to dismantle the camera completely. This is not a job for the timid. It also will require the lens to be aligned internally with the re-adjustment of the electronic components with a program from Canon on your computer. Some of these programs will require a purchase.
I would suggest to either have it repaired by Canon or some repairman, or sell it at a site such as Ebay for repair or parts. You may also opt to trade-up or trade-off to Canon's Refurb program. Canon info

No power. Lens 'protruding'.

There are six other things to try besides shaking, tapping, and bashing listed on the following blog page. Especially try the one starting the camera with the memory card removed. Do not recommend dismantling as your chances are very slim in repairing that way:

Water inside the lens (Canon EF-S 17-85mm F4.5-f5.6 lens)

if it is only fogged you can blow hot air on the lens while fully zoomed in and after the water has evaporated, zoom out to compress the moist air out. do this several times.

Canon A610 Lens problem

Unless you have prior experience dismantling a digital camera, it could be quite tricky.
HERE is a service manual that should help. Its not the A610, but they are similar.
If your camera has a plastic ring around the lens, then it should be quite simple. Use a jeweler's screwdriver and try to pry out the ring. Once that is done, it should be easy enough to remove the lens barrels.
However, like I said, if you are not too familiar with this, it is best that you get it done by a pro. If it costs too much, then try giving it a shot yourself (nothing to lose anyways), and if you should screw up, there is always the option of buying a new camera :)
