    having a sigma 70-300mm macro sigma lens for the minolta 500si, will it
    fit a canon EOS-camera?

    You more than likely can find a mechanical adapter to allow this. But I
    doubt that it would work correctly as the EOS system relies on the camera
    body and lens having a dialog. And to boot were it I I would not put much
    money into trying to make the change as the lens is not all that great. When
    you consider that a Canon USM lens with that range can be found used for
    under $100.00.

    NO, the lens fit is different, you might be able to find an adapter to do it
    with, but they will be expensive.
    And even then you might find that it will throw off your aperture, shutter
    and focus settings, infact it might be difficult to get the auto focus to
    work through it at all.

    No, lenses for Minolta will not fit a Canon camera. You will need a
    lens adapter.
