I recently, after much deliberation and research, bought the new Canon EOS 350D. I have however been unable to make use of it for the following reasons. When I tried to insert a Compact flash card, the camera returned an error. I thought that the CF card was faulty, so tried another one with the same result. Upon returning the camera to the retailer, and the retailer having the same result, a phone call was made to Canon South Africa. From Canon SA the reply was that there was a batch of 20 000 cameras that were faulty, in that they could not read any CF cards. I was assured by Canon that I would have a replacement camera with a week, (this was on Monday the 25th of July 2005). 2 weeks later and I still don't have a camera nor do I have any indication of when I might get my camera back. I get the same "Err 99".

And the Err 99 goes on.. I just got my Canon Digital Rebel yesterday. I was excited that I'd be able to swap lenses with my wifes Canon EOS 5000. She has a Sigma 100mm-300mm lens that is about 10 years old. That being said, it seems I'm out of luck with that.

Can Sigma update a lens that old?

Email Sigma and give them a description or picture etc and they should be able to give you info on upgrading if possible.

I just sent them an email and had a reply the next day.

Cheers Paul
