Yes. It will fit and work on every current Nikon digital camera. It will act longer, like a 125-450mm on the smaller sensor bodies (everything except the D700 and the D3 series). It will act like a 75-300mm on the D700 and the D3. It also won't autofocus on some of the low-end bodies, such as the D3000, which require the lens to have an internal focus motor.

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my nikon d5000 camera


That depends on the lens. Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Nikon mount then you don't need an adapter at all.

Since the Nikon lens mount has a deeper flange depth than other mounts, you cannot fit a lens with another mount onto a Nikon body without losing the ability to focus to infinity. Because of this, you won't find an adapter for another mount. Adapters are available to fit Nikon lenses onto other cameras but not the other way around.

Does my Sigma 28-105 mm Aspherical for film camera work on my Canon 5D Mark III?


If the Sigma lens mount is a Canon FD fitting then you can get an adapter FD to EF that will allow you to use the old lens in manual mode. If your camera isn't designed to take EF-s lenses then they will not fit on the camera. My EF-s lenses will not fit on my 6D.

I now use this lens on Nikon N5005 and want to purchase the D5000 camera. Is this lens compatible?


Yes and no. The lens will fit on the D5000 without a problem. But the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film so you'll end up using only the center portion of the image. What this amounts to is that the lens will act like a 115-450 zoom would on the N5005. Also, if the lens doesn't have a focus motor built in (Sigma calls it HSM) then it won't autofocus on the D5000. You can still focus manually, though.

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.

Got Sigma dl 75-300mm


Every lens made after 1996 with AF is made for that particular body. Hence the reason many small camera stores when bust, carrying a huge inventory for the 6 or 8 different cameras out there.
