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!

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.

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 .
