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!

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.

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!
