Canon Digital Rebel EOS-Does a Quantaray Lens fit?

by Lauretta / October 6, 2004 6:05 AM PDT

I have the Canon Rebel EOS digital and also the Rebel
35mm. When I purchased the 35mm I also purchased the Quantaray 70-300 zoom lens. This purchase was over 5 years ago. I have tried using the lens on my Digital but keep getting an "Error 99". Is the lens too old for this camera? I have no photo stores close by to have it checked and I'm wondering if it is just not compatible.

It sounds like a common complaint.

Check out this website. Lots of info about error 99.
Quantaray is made by Sigma.

Here is a clip from the Sigma website:

Q: Are Sigma lenses compatible with my new Canon Elan 7 camera? The Digital Rebel? How about EOS 10D.

A: All current production Sigma lenses for Canon autofocus cameras are fully compatible with the new Elan 7, Digital Rebel or EOS 10D camera. If you have a question about a particular lens, please contact Sigma's service department (in the U.S.) at (631) 585-1144 or via email at info@sigmaphoto.com <mailto:info@sigmaphoto.com>.

Thanks for the helpful information. It certainly seems to be a common problem with the camera. I'm more concerned now with the functioning of the camera with my Canon lenses. Sounds as though all lenses are creating Error 99.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
