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.

Question edited for clarity.

You get the Sigma lens for the camera in Canon fit.

Can you use Sigma lenses on Canon cameras?
Since Sigma lenses are made to be fully compatible with Canon cameras, they are backwards-compatible. This means that you can use a Sigma lens on a Canon DSLR camera. Similarly, the Sigma cameras are backwards-compatible with Canon lenses. Macro adapter loses the AF feature.

What lens mount do you have on the lens? In other words, with what make film camera did you use the lens? A DSLR from the same company should be able to use the lens.

My Quantaray 100 to 300mm (7 seven years old or so) for Canon AF cameras will not work consistently...It works on my Rebel 35 mm perfectly, but not on my new digital SLR Rebel T1i. The auto focus works,...

Your problem is a simple one: technology doesn't stand still.

Your lens was designed to work with Canon technical protocols which existed seven years ago and things have advanced somewhat since then.

With some third party lenses it's possible to send the lens to the manufacturer's service agent and pay to have it serviced and updated, but this cannot be done with your lens.

You'll have to buy a more recent lens model if you want to use it on your Rebel T1i. Older Canon lenses should mostly still work (unless Canon clearly state otherwise) as Canon will have taken their design into account on later bodies, but Canon have no interest nor any reason to make their later bodies able to use older non-Canon products.

Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that you have still found it to be of some use and that you take a moment to rate my reply.

I have a Quantaray 28-200mm lens that I used on my old Nikon slr and I want to use it on my Canon dslr but the lens is way too big for the camera body. Clearly I'm a novice... Is there a mount I can buy...

The short answer is no.

The Long answer is maybe. You'd have to call some stores that carry the Quantaray products. Get phone numbers for the distributor, warranty repair shops, and maybe Quantaray home offices which may be in another country. Then you can find out if they still have the mounts for those lenses in stock, can it be done, where to send it, and how much. Mind you, they may have to totally change the electronics and the motors inside the lens too.

Cannon lenses

All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.
