I have a Sigma 70-300 mm lens 1:4-5.6 DL. it works on my EOS 450D does it also work on an EOS 500D hoping for a reaction


Hi

Here's Sigma's Webpage. You should call them at 1-800-896-6858 to verify this lens will work, as I can not find a listing for the "DL" lens you have.

My initial response is that if it fits the 450D, it is a Canon mount and should work about the same on the 500D assuming both cameras have the same size sensors.

Again, a free call to the manufacturer is going to provide the best possible information on compatibility issues between this lens and various Canon camera bodies.

Good luck!

I am thinking about getting a Nikon D3000 or D3100. Will my Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300 and Sigma 28-80 D work with these cameras.


If those lenses have a Nikon mount then they will fit on the D3000 and D3100. However, the D3000 and D3100 lack a focus motor. If the lens does not have the focus motor then you will not have the autofocus capability. Sigma calls their focus motor the HSM; if the lens does not specify HSM then they do not have the motor.

Will a SIGMA 70-300 f4 DL MACRO LENS fit on a CANON EOS 20D?


Assuming you get the lens with a Canon mount, yes. Sigma makes lenses to fit a variety of makes, but each one has a different mount. A lens intended for a Nikon, for example, will not fit a Canon.

Will a Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Lens fit my Nikon D80?


All after market lenses are specifically designed for a brand of camera. They are for Nikon, Cannon, Minolta etc.. They can not be cross branded just as you could not use a Nikon made lens on a Pentax.

Does a sigma 70-300mm dl macro fits on a canon 500d camera?


Yes, if you get one with a Canon mount. Sigma makes their lenses available with a variety of mounts; a lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit on a Canon camera.

It is asking you to clean the electronic points on the lens that come into contact with the camera body when the two are fitted together, in order to power the lens functions.

If other lens work ok, try giving the lens electronic contact point on the mounting plate a light rub with a dry cotton-bud, may be a fingerprint .

Trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens


It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.
