Sigma 28-80/macro not working with EOS 10D - Photography

I have a lens that is working quite nicely with my EOS 500. Using the same lens with the 10D, however, involves a few headaches. Seems like the shutter is unable to perform correctly, and in risk of damaging the camera, I have stopped using the Sigma lens. Is there any other lens out there that will do the same as my Sigma lens, and that's compatible with the 10D? I'm a newbie to this, so what (budget) lens will suffice given the 1,6x focal length multiplication of the 10D? 50mm? 105mm? Make? Best regards, DagH...

    Default Sigma 28-80/macro not working with EOS 10D

    I have a lens that is working quite nicely with my EOS 500. Using the
    same lens with the 10D, however, involves a few headaches. Seems like
    the shutter is unable to perform correctly, and in risk of damaging
    the camera, I have stopped using the Sigma lens.

    Is there any other lens out there that will do the same as my Sigma
    lens, and that's compatible with the 10D? I'm a newbie to this, so
    what (budget) lens will suffice given the 1,6x focal length
    multiplication of the 10D? 50mm? 105mm? Make?

    Another Sigma chip problem.
    Go to Sigmas website, the might be
    able to rechip it once, past that you
    can throw it away..

    If you don't want to deal with the Sigma chip problem, Tokina makes a
    stellar 28-80 f2.8 ATX Pro, retails for a bit more than the Sigma. The
    Canon 28-105 f3.5-4.5 is great for the price, considerably less than the
    Tokina.

    Two bits of advice.

    1. Contact the Sigma distributor and send the lens back to them to have the
    computer chip upgraded. No cost and reasonably prompt service (at least in
    Canada).

    2. Start saving for a Canon 28-135 IS lens. This is more expensive, but
    the quality of the images is worth it.

    Thanks, both! I'll see if I'm able to chip the Sigma lens first.

    Drop it on the doorstep a couple of times, that should chip it nicely

    Actually, I got a very deal on a brand new macro (Sigma 50mm f2.8 EX)
    from the distributor only one hour after my latest posting here. I
    must truly say, I'm not at all disappointed after the upgrade!

    Thanks, all!
