I have a 100-300mm kense I purchase 6 years ago with my Canon Rebel 2000 EOS 35mm camera. I recently up graded to the Canon Digital Rebel XTI. The Canon 28-80 mm works fine, but the Qunataray 100-300mm lense does not, the shutter seems to get stuck or is slow. Does anyone know how to contact Quantaray, I can not find any support for them on the net or by phone.
I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can do. Appararently, the quantaray, being an older lens, wasn't made to work with this latest era of cameras. Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital cameras and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera Resource page (www.dcresource.com)

To be sure you can use the lens, buy a Canon EOS lens. The plastic ones, can be cheap. I bought my last lens 28 - 80 mm, couple of months ago, for 5 dollar. and a working EOS 500 was connected for the same price. (lens and camera are still in good working order) Don't try other brands, because even when you find a convertor, it could be the lens will only work on manual focus.
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.
Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.
Not realistically. Your EOS 300 (US=EOS Rebel 2000) was sold as a "consumer" camera. This means that it's built down to a price (it was actually designed and manufactured by Kodak on Canon's behalf) and was never intended to be repaired once out of warranty.
The camera will be around ten years old now and spares support was poor even when it was a current model. All but the most minor repairs under warranty consisted of throwing the camera away and sending the customer another one.
Although what I've told you may be disappointing, the cloud has a silver lining: you can get these for next to nothing on auction websites now and certainly for nothing on FreeCycle and Freegle; that's where I get most of my Canon and Nikon 35mm equipment from. High end models do still retain some value to both users and collectors, but any Canon EOS triple digit model/Rebel is never going to be of any real value unless it comes with non-standard lenses or other sought-after accessories.
The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.
