This will probably sound quite dumb and the answer might be right in front of my face but I'll ask anyways seeing as I have no clue and are new to all this digital SLR business...
How do you tell if a lens will work with a camera?

I can't be of much help Pillowcase. The one piece of lens knowledge I have is that you can't use EFS series lenses on my 10D!!
I'm sure someone here will be able to fill you in!

lenses are relatively simple to understand. Canon makes lenses for Canon cameras and Nikon makes em for Nikon cameras. canon lenses also start with EF or EFS, EF means Eos Fit. Nikon calls their lenses Nikkor. There are also third party companies out there like Sigma, Tamron, etc. They make lenses for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Minolta, etc. Just make sure you read the box or the on-line ads to be sure what it is for. You'll get a hang of it quick after obtaining your first DSLR! Good luck...

Also, most Sigma lenses are built with corresponding mounts to make them fully compatible with many of the worlds most popular camera bodies, including Sigma, Canon, Minolta, Nikon and Pentax.
Quote from your website. Just make sure you buy the Sigma with a lens mount for the Canon EOS when ordering the lens.
