Ian, testing today confirmed your thoughts regarding the 40D and XS. I honestly didn't expect the lens to function properly paired with either body but I wasn't going to take it as fact without doing my research. The good news is the lens functioned flawlessly on a 1D MKII which means it should have decent resale value as there are still quite a few of those bodies in service.

Interesting, that seems to contradict older "common wisdom" regarding those very old Sigmas - must take note!

Well that's a bit of a surprise. 1d2 should not work with it. So at least it works with something.

Well, I was afraid it was too good to be true so I tried the lens on another MK II and sure enough got the error message on all setting other than wide open. Needless to say I'm disappointed but what's a guy to do. Hopefully I can find a buyer with a classic 1D.

Ian, I bow to your knowledge of all things vintage Sigma.
