cleaning the contacts on lens and camera is about all you can do. If its faulty and still under warranty then you'll need to send it back to where you got it from, any attempt to fix it yourself will void the warranty.

Sigma 70-300 F4-5.6 APO DG MACRO for Nikon AFD Focusing problem

had this lens for my Pentax and used it for more than 10 years without trouble. Have you got the lock on? should be a little button on the side. Has it been dropped, maybe damage to the threads inside. If its still under warranty then take it to the place you bought it from with all its paper work and get it checked out.

I have error 01 on my Quantary 70-300 lens, I have tried to clean it, and different appitures as suggested, however I am still getting error01. Any other suggestions?

If the lens is compatible with your Canon, the only thing I can think of is a defective chip or a bad connection inside the lens. just bring it back to the shop you bought it.

How to fix an error 99 on a Sigma 24-70 mm lens

The error 99 on your Canon is the last thing the camera can think of, if it really does not know what is wrong. If you don't have the message when using a different lens, and the error keeps coming back with that lens, you are right it is in the lens. But again the camera can;t find out what. The only thing you can do is make sure the contacts are clean and shiny and nothing os blocking free movement of all the parts on the lens. If you can't get it working correct, please contact a Certified Sigma service centre.

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.

DS 126151 error

What kind of error? Err 99? You mention DS 126151, that's the model number. This camera is mostly know as Canon EOS Rebel XTi? Also known as the EOS 400D or EOS Kiss Digital X. If you are getting a Err 99 while shooting, try any other lens that will fit on your Canon. In most cases the aperture will become defect in these lenses. Not worth repairing if you ask me. One thing you could do, is shoot only at its maximum aperture. So that'll be F4.0 at 70mm and F5.6 at 300mm. That might work, but that might not be suitable in every situation.

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.

Is it possible to convert a sigma lens to fit a canon body or by using an m42 adapter?

Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Canon or M42 mount then there is no problem. If it has a Minolta mount, for example, then replacing the lens will be easier and just as cheap as changing the mount. If it has Nikon mount, you can buy adapters to fit it to Canon or M42 bodies.

Does the Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 DL Macro Super Lens work on a Canon EOS 600D?

Sigma makes lenses with a variety of mounts. As long as you get one with a Canon mount it will work on your 600D. A lens with, say, a Sony mount, will not work on a Canon camera.

Are older Sigma Quantaray lenses

Yes. Bear in mind that many Canon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This results in the image being cropped, narrowing the field of view and making the lens behave as if it was of a longer focal length.

Does a "Sigma APO DG

It will fit, but you cannot guarantee that it will be fully compatible.

Third party lens manufacturers have to reverse engineer the patented technology of SLR manufacturers and then arrive at their own alternative and non-infringing solutions. As a result, their lenses are only ever guaranteed compatible with the SLR models available at the time they were manufactured, and if those cameras subsequently have firmware updates then all bets are off.

Sigma do offer an update service on many of their lenses, but it's not free and the lens has to go back to them for modifications.

The only lenses you can be sure of being compatible are the original Canon branded models.
