Does the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro fit the Nikon D300s?

Hi
I am new to the forum



I have had a Nikon D-70 for over five years, complete with an SB-600 Speedlight and two Nikon lenses and two Sigma Lenses: my favourite being a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro. I absolutely adored my Nikon D-70 but I decided to treat myself to an upgrade and recently I bought a Nikon D300s with a new Nikkor 18-105mm lens. However, I would really love to use my old Sigma Macro (70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro) with my new Nikon D300s but when I first tried to fit the lens until my camera it seemed to go on very tightly and because the D300s was such an expensive buy (near 1700 plus after equipment and insurance) I got scared and stopped trying to put the lens on halfway. So, basically I would love to use my Macro lens on the D300s and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it is indeed compatiable with my new camera?

Thanks people!

Welcome to Pixalo Cassidy1987

If your Sigma lens fitted the D70, it should fit all recent Nikons as they all share the same mount. I had a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 that I used on my D70s, my D300 and now my D700.

If it feels tight, it might just be that the D70 mount was slightly worn and the D300s is obviously new, and therefore has no wear.

I went from D70 to a D300s so I can also mirror the above.
