On Ebay there is a Sigma 100-300mm lens for sale. It's the 2003 model. Will it work on the new Rebel XT? Is the lens the same todays 100-300mm?

Thanks

No, it might not be. It might need to be rechipped.
I would check with Sigma (of course, there might not be enough time for that.... but they are the ones that would know for sure.

I passed on the bid.I thought the lens was the 100-300 F4.

Thanks for your advice.

Lots of misinfo on the web
1. All EX series will work regardless of age - The 100-300 f/4 is one of them...
2. For non-EX lens if they are made after 2000 they work just fine; Otherwise depending on the lens they may still fix it for free...

- just call Sigma and verify for yourself :idea:
