Because it is a different manufacturer, there is no guarantee that the two will communicate fully.

You are actually doing well to not be having an error 99 message between the camera and the lens where you can't take photos at all and you have to keep removing the lens and cleaning the contacts.

If you do get that error at some point in the future, that will be the likely cause and solution, and the best advice I can give you is to get a Canon lens...I know that is just adding cost and not the answer you probably want to hear, but it is the most truthful answer I can give you.

Take Care and I Hope this Helps!

I have been offered a SiGMA 400mm F/5.6 manual lens for a minolta mount. Will it fit my camera? Cheers Pete


Minolta had two lens mounts. One for manual focus SLR film cameras and one for Auto Focus SLR Maxxum film and digital SLR cameras. Sony uses Minolta Maxxum lens mount.
If the Sigma 400 f5.6 lens was made for Minolta X-700 series, XG, series, XD series, SRT series, then it will not fit on your camera.

Will not auto focus with a smaller lens.


I had the same issue with my Nikon d60...my 18-55mm did auto focus but my 55-200mm only manual focused, i thought it might have been my camera as i heard that not all lenses are compatible with my d60 but it turned out to be the focussing motor or something that was damaged, it was making a very funny noise when it tried to auto focus with it,like a screeching sound..if this is the case you should get it repaired and looked at, also check on the lens if it says it is a AF lens,if so make sure th switch on the side of the lens is switched on AF not MF. hope it helps

cheers

Canon 350d with sigma 75-300 Macro


Check you exposure compensation and make sure it's not set above 0. Also take a peek at your LCD brightness level. If it's set high, everything looks overexposed when it's really not.

HELP Sigma 24-60MM wide Angle


The helicoid or the barrel thread in the lens may be jammed. The lens will have to be serviced. You should take it back for warranty service.

As for myself, I aways buy origional manufacture lenses and accessorites for my cameras.
