Most film era third party lenses have compatibility issues with modern Canon digital SLRs. In the past Sigma could “re-chip” the lenses so they work, but I don’t believe it is possible any more.

 

Even if the do work, they will not be as good as the kit lenses that come with the T7i. The Rebel K2 is a Full Frame camera and the T7i is a 1.6 Crop camera, so your lenses will also not be as wide angle as you are used to.

Re: Lens Compatibility

Thank you for the info Mike,I sort of figured that was the case but thought I would double check with someone that knows for sure.

" I would double check with someone that knows for sure."

 

He doesn't know for sure. SOmetimes they do work, sometimes they don't.  And, sometimes they work but not well.

Do you have the T7i or are you thinking of buying a T7i.  If you already have it, try the lenses yourself.  You may be surprised. If you don't have a new T7i yet, buy it with new lenses.

Yes, try out the lenses because they might work. 

 

Very often the AF works fine, but the aperture only works wide open. If you try to stop down the lens, (either manually, or in an Auto mode),  it will cause an error message, or lock up the camera.

Re: Lens Compatibility

Hello.  I have a question about lense compatibility with my EOS Rebel T3i - I have a Canon Zoom Lens EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III lens that I have tried to mount on the body of my EOS Rebel T3i, but the lens will not mount flush with the camera body.  I do not want to force anythng.  (1) is the lens compatible and (2) what am I doing wrong?  

 

Once mounted as well as possible, when used and I zoom in on an object it is blurry no matter what I do.  Can you Help?:

Yes, your lens should be compatible. I doesn't make sense that your lens is not mounting properly.  

 

Try taking a photo of the camera and lens, showing how you try to mount it.  After you save the photo to your compiter or phone or iPad, you can then attach the photo to a post in this forum.

 

To post, just go to one of the board names like "Lenses" or "EOS Rebel" and you will see a box called "NEW MESSAGE" in the upper left corner.

How long have you had the camera and the lens? Does the lens work on other cameras? Does the camera work with other lenses? If I had to guess, sight unseen, I'd suspect that the lens has been dropped and that the mounting flange got bent a little. But we really need more information about exactly what works and what doesn't.
