    taking the battery out and letting the camera sit for a few minutes batteryless, then putting it back in. This can have the same effect as resetting a problem

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 08, 2008

    if it does not work the gold contacts get dirty



    please clean the contacts on the lens and the camera.

    this can help you.



    Error 99 is the 'catchall' error number



    To summarize:
    1. Turn off the camera.
    2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
    3. Reattach your lens.
    4. Turn on the camera.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
    If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

    If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.



    Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    Error 99 is many things. Mostly on the D-Rebel. It's usually the lens.
    Make sure camera is off before installing/inserting/attaching the things from the steps i gave you..If these steps do not help then, attach the lens and turn it on. (make sure you put it on
    correctly). before you do that, make sure the contacts on the lens
    are clean.




  • Priya darshan Jul 08, 2008

    If you still face the problem then it is a lens error.Again,please make sure the contacts on the lens are clean.And if this doesn't help you will have to get this repaired.

    Goodluck..

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.

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my Pentax MZ-50 film camera on my Canon EOS 1000d DSLR. Would it work?


You may be able to find an adaptor, but I doubt it and you would lose many functions in any case. It could end up that the lens will not auto focus or that it would not meter properly. These adaptors are made so that specialty lenses (such as fisheye or shift lenses) can be mounted on cameras when needed. Your 28-200 would probably be cheaper to by in an EOS mount.

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.
