Does this lens have a t-mount?


If someone is selling this "old" lens, you should ask him (her) what kind of mount it has. These lenses are made for different brands. Most of the time you also can buy an adapter to fit it on your camera. No problem most adapters don't give trough the AF info, because this lens is an manual focus lens. More interesting is to know if your camera can work with manual lenses. Because most of the time you also have to set everything by hand. Like aperture shutter time and so on. So check the manual if it can, to avoid disappointment after you bought this thing. Also read what others think about this lens.

I recently bought myself a very good CanonESO 50D. Canon DS 126211 serial number 0620301416 Since I only bought the camera, I needed to get Canon compatible lenses and was looking for a 70-300mm. I bo


Almost all early Quantaray lenses (and Sigma lenses, Sigma made Quantaray) in the Canon EOS mount will show error messages on Canon digital cameras (but still work fine on older EOS film cameras). usually err99 but err01 also. There is no DIY fix and Sigma ran out of update parts years ago. Current production lenses and Canon made lenses will not have this problem. This lens would only work for someone shooting EOS film cameras with no intention of "upgrading" their system to digital Canon cameras in the future.

Hi, I bought a CANON FD - 28 mm f 2.8 WIDE ANGLE LENS for my OH's eos 400D, he says it doesnt fit, its too small. Is there an adapter or anything or should I just look for the right one? Many thanks


Canon FD lenses date back to before the mid 1980's. They use a totally different mounting system to the later EOS mount which was a redesign to suit the needs of auto-focussing.

Unfortunately they are chalk and cheese: you cannot realistically fit an FD lens to an EOS camera.

Your fix is to sell the lens and to buy one with an EOS mount.

I have a canon Zoom FD 70-210mm 1:4 lens off a SLR camera. Will it work with digital cameras?


No Canon FD lenses cannot be used on Canon EOS system cameras (all autofocus Canons except for the ancient and obsolete Canon T-series 35mm SLR's from the 1980's use the EOS mount).

There are very few cameras which can take them (35mm or digital) without some kind of expensive mounting converter which would include corrective optics.

If in good condition though it's a great lens and can be used on plenty of old Canon classic 35mm SLR models such as the AE1, AT-1 , AV-1 and Canon T-series, all of which are cheap//free and readily available.

I recently bought the sigma 17-70 along with the canon 550d. It looks to me not sharp, not crisp, looks worst like the older 350 with the normal 18-55 canon. Is this normal for sigma?


If you bought these locally, this would be a matter to take up starting with the store where you purchased the items. This would be the quickest path to diagnosis presuming they would have another lens or camera for comparison. If bought on-line, contact the seller and describe the problem. In either case, they may elect to replace or repair. You could also contact SigmaUSA repair and ask for an RMA authorization for inspection/repair. Since there are two equipment brands, finger pointing is a possibility.

It's probable that although it's designated Macro, the lens actually only gets in fairly close. I recommend you buy a closeup filter which is a simple lens you screw on the front of your lens. You can different strengths for getting in closer. Otherwise treat yourself to a set of extension tubes which do the same thing but more effectively.
I hope that helps

Is this a good lens?


That lens have a FD mount. That means that you need to an adapter to use on a New Digital Canon Camera. The problem with the FD-EF adapter is that the it has a lens inside to correct the focal point. It's usually a very BAD glass. The 60-300 F4 will become something like a 84-420 F8. You will loose all sharpness. My opinion is DONT use FD lens on a EOS Camera.

Sigma 70-300mm lens not fitting Canon EOS 350D


Are you sure you bought a lens with Canon AF mount? To me it sounds like you got one with a mount for a different camera.
Does the mount on the lens look like this?

If it doesn't, you got the wrong version of the lens. If it does look like the mount in the picture, your just mounting it incorrectly.
If you hold the camera with the lens mount facing you, the red marker on the lens should be in the 12 o'clock position, lining up with the red marker on the lens mount on the camera. The turn the lens clock wise, about an 8'th of a full turn, and the lens should click into place.
I hope this help you!
