Hi,
If you are sure that Sigma DL 75-300 mm zoom lens is fine and have tested on another camera then firmware update of Rebel 2Ti might fix its issue.
Required firmware update is available, click at Canon Support link and click on EOS Rebel T2i Firmware Update Version 1.0.8 to download it.

CAUTION: Follow Canon instructions strictly that you will see at download page to avoid any damage to camera during firmware update.


Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

How to fix an error 99 on a Sigma 24-70 mm lens


The error 99 on your Canon is the last thing the camera can think of, if it really does not know what is wrong.
If you don't have the message when using a different lens, and the error keeps coming back with that lens, you are right it is in the lens. But again the camera can;t find out what.
The only thing you can do is make sure the contacts are clean and shiny and nothing os blocking free movement of all the parts on the lens. If you can't get it working correct, please contact a Certified Sigma service centre.

Does Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens fit canon eos rebel


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of camera mounts. If you get the lens with a Canon mount then yes, it will fit any EOS Rebel camera body. A lens with a Pentax mount, for example, will not fit a Canon camera.

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.

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.

Error 99 with Canon


You need to have your Sigma lens rechipped. Contact your local Sigma representative, they should be aware of this, and will be able to tell where to take the lens to be rechipped.
