Hey paulleem,
If the lens is fogging when going from a dry environment to a very humid one or going from a cold environment to a very warm one then I would suggest putting the camera in a zip lock bag until the camera gets acclimated to the new environment. If the lens is fogged internally then there is most likely a seal broken inside or a cracked lens element and the camera should be looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

I got new Sigma 18-200 DC II lens, with Canon EOS 5D Mark II it has black lens frame is visible through viewfinder or on the photo. Does it mean this lens is not compatible with 5DmrkII?


The EOS 50d Mark II is what's known as a "full-frame" camera. Its image sensor is the same size as a frame of 35mm film. The Sigma DC lens is intended for cameras with smaller sensors. The lens is compatible in that it will work with the camera to take pictures, but the pictures are cropped due to the smaller imaging area of the lens.

In order to use the full image sensor area you need to use full-frame lenses. In the case of Sigma, this means lenses without the DC designation.

D5100 won't power on with Sigma macro lens atttached


This is not a solution but the same kind of problem.

I just bought a Nikon D5100 and found that my Sigma 105mm macro has a problem. The camera will not power up, but if I turn it on, untwist the lens and then twist it back in, the camera powers up. If I leave it for a few seconds, it powers down again. Provided I keep taking photos, it works, but this is not acceptable because it can take several seconds to get a focus on a close-up, and by time I get the focus, the camera powers down again.

I never had any problems with this lens on my Nikon D80. I also use several lenses, all of which work well with both cameras. It's only the Sigma that has the problem. And I did clean the contacts with a proper contact cleaning solution and a swab, but still no joy. My lenses are made by Tamron, Pro Optic, Nikon and Sigma, and the only problem lens is the Sigma.

Is there an adapter for a Sigma lens onto a Nikon d-40 camera?


Sigma makes some lenses for Nikon cameras-- though the Nikon D40 requires a lens with its own internal focusing mechanism, since it does not have an autofocus motor. This entirely depends on what Sigma lens you have, i.e. if it were a Sigma lens made for a Canon camera, yes there would be an adapter for that-- but the likelihood of success is less with the limitation of the D40 needing an internal focus motor on the lens.

Was told by amazon that your 50mmF2.8 DG macro would autofocus on my nikon d40x...it does not...am I missing something or did amazon mislead me? Thanks Kevin


FixYa does not make lenses. From the name, I'm going to assume it's a Sigma lens.

The Nikon D40x does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. This particular Sigma lens does not have such a motor. Sigma designates their lenses with an autofocus motor as "HSM", Nikon calls theirs "AF-S".

I saw nothing on Amazon's page for this lens specifically mentioning the D40x. If someone there told you that it will autofocus on the D40x, then yes, you were misled.

Will a sigma 170-500mm apo dg lens work with my canon d30 camera .... d30 not the 30 d


Yes, assuming you get the Sigma with a Canon mount. The D30 has the Canon EF mount like other Canons. Sigma makes lenses with a variety of mounts, and a lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon.

Sigma to nikon lens adapter


No. You can buy an adapter to fit a Nikon lens onto a Canon, but not a Sigma.

Fitting a Sigma Lenset to Nikon D40


You have to make sure you bought the sigma lens with a NIKON mount. Sigma makes a Sigma mount as well as a Canon mount, of course neither of those mounts will work with your camera. Also you must also make sure your lens is the Sigma 70-300 HSM (/Hyper Sonic Motor) or it will not AF on the D40. I just bought this lens from Abes of Maine and I love it on my D40.

Sigma 70-300 +''no lense attached'' w/ sony a200 dslr


Unfortunately, there are electrical differences between early and later Sigma lenses. Although the bayonet connection is the same, and the lens can fit, it will not necessarily connect electrically with the connections on the camera. Sigma can modify the lens for you, but this can be quite costly, and you may be cheaper to look for an alternative lens.

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS 400d and wonder if anyont can confirm whether my lens from old Canon EOS 620 film camera body will be compatible. (Unfortunately lens in storage at moment so I can't...


The canon lens should work fine. Some of the Sigma lenses have to be converted by Sigma to work with digital. The last one I sent to them they only charged me $10 for return shipping. You can find their address online.
