I guess I was just wondering if there is any problems with using a non-Canon lense on a Rebel? Also if I would get a mulitplier should it be a Canon or the same as my lense or does it not matter?

3rd part lenses, such as sigma,tamron, tokina etc will work just fine with your digi rebel. for the most part it usually a good idea to match your teleconverter with your lens..

As long as the lens was made to mount to a Canon EF lens mount it will work.

The crop factor is the same with those lenses as well.

Hi Jeff,

I went to your website and your doing a great job. Glad to see you got a grant and spentthe money wisely.

You not going to run into problems with other lens as long as they are for Canon EOS AF. But you'll have to weigh the value of each lens your are considering. Some lenses are better then others even from Canon. So you should nose around here for a few days and get a feel for what lenses people are talking about. Read the old post inCanon Lensesthat go back a few weeks. I don't have a multiplier but I have read in here that matched to lenses is the better set-up. Look around in that forum. Get a feel for what's what.

Good luck with your photos
dale

Some of the older Sigma lens may need to be rechipped to work with the Canon DSLR. The new Sigma lens work well with the Canon cameras. Sigma will rechip the lens for free as I understand from reading other postings.
