    Canon t3 and a Sigma lens trouble

    Yes. I emailed back immediately that I am the original owner and I had just purchased the lens brand new that week. I've received no answer back yet.

    Canon t3 and a Sigma lens trouble

    Whether it's my fault or the lenses or a calibration issue, I decided to return it. $135 seemed unreasonable. I like Sigma's pricing, but I guess when you pay extra for Canon you also get better customer service.

    Canon t3 and a Sigma lens trouble

    Just got a reply: Hello Kelly, If the camera and lens combination gives you sharp images when using the Live View focusing feature of the camera then you have a slight misalignment in your cameras viewfinder focusing system, we can correct that with an AF Data adjustment to the...

    Canon t3 and a Sigma lens trouble

    Thank you everyone for the quick replies. I contacted Sigma - I haven't heard back from them yet. At the time I was looking for a new lens, I was also considering the Canon 70D body after talking to a sales rep at B&H Photo. But I decided to go with what I was taught - if you have a budget, save...

    Canon t3 and a Sigma lens trouble

    After much research (and some opinions on here) I bought a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 lens for my Canon t3. The auto focus is off. I was reading on how to calibrate lenses to cameras with things like the Focus Pyramid, but I can't seem to find the option to calibrate in this camera. Am I missing...

    Zoom lens for sports photography

    You all have me looking at the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8. How do you all feel about 1.4 TC on the lens? I'm afraid I'll miss that extra 100mm in certain situations, but maybe can live without it. I don't have any experience with Tamron at all. Is it quality?

    Zoom lens for sports photography

    Ronlane - I agree. The f/5.6 was concerning me. I will almost always be outside in the daytime, but I want coverage when these events end up inside. I will continue my search.

    Zoom lens for sports photography

    I am looking for a lens to take photos of horses in action. I will need some zoom as I am standing outside of a riding ring and the horses will be moving all over the place. I have a Canon Rebel T3 and I currently use the EF 75-300 F/4-5.6 III. I think the images could be clearer, and comparing...
