Default Sigma EOS lenses on 10d

Hi all,

I am looking at buying a canon 10d to replace my old EOS 630 yea, it is old but it still serves me well. I am wondering if the Sigma EOS lenses will work on the 10d? I for example have a sigma 28-105 aspherical lense. What I am wanting is to get by with the older lenses and once I can afford newer Canon IS lenses.

What do you all think?

Thanks,

Mark

You might want something wider than 28mm, with the 1.6x factor you're just getting a normal lens, but a wide angle is more useful most of the time... (at least for me)

I had to have my two year old Sigma 28-105 lenses re-chipped at no charge from sigma. Also my 100 - 300. Since getting them back I have been very happy with the AF speed and image quality.

good luck

Default how to contact sigma re: re-chipping older EOS lenses

I also have a Sigma 400mm EOS lense that is circa 1990 or so. How do I contact Sigma to see if they will re-chip it?

Thanks,

The lens should then be sent to Sigma’s Service Department, with a note describing that the lens will be used with the new camera. Sigma technicians will then perform the necessary upgrade.

This service will be provided as a courtesy and will not affect the lens’ performance with other Canon AF SLR cameras. In addition, a cleaning and a check of all lens functions will also be provided at no cost to the lens’ owner.

Sincerely,

SIGMA Corporation of America
