Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DL Aspherical IF Hyperzoom Autofocus Lens for canon slr compatible with Canon t3i dslr


Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

Will it work with digital Nikon camera?


Yes, with caveats. First, bear in mind that this lens has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Second, the lens does not have a built-in focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000 models. You also won't get 3D Matrix metering on those models. Everything else will work, and all features should work on other models.

That lens is not an AFS type lens. The D40x camera only uses AFS compatible lenses. You could still mount and use it in M, but it will never give you autofocus or TTL flash.

That lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus with the D40x. Nothing is broken.

Not auto focusing


It could be that the autofocus switch has become unglued from the frame and so it doesn't ever switch on. If your camera doesn't indicate that autofocus is on, but you're not getting an error message, then this might be the problem. Unscrew the two screws that hold the AF switch onto the lens, and see if the underlying PCB upon which the switch is mounted has come loose. If you, take the lens apart from the back and use double-sided tape to re-adhere.

70-300DL Macro Super autofocus problem


It is likely that the lens will need parts. Sigma is not the best for repair parts. Typically, the small nylon gears that control the AF break. It is still a useful piece in manual focus. Repair costs would likely exceed its value.

Sigma 55-200mm F4-5.6 DC


The D40 will only AF with lenses that have their own focusing motor (Nikon AF-S and Sigma HSM). This lens will not focus.
