I was just wondering what the general feelings are on keeping a lens attatched to a body is. What I mean is, I just bought a Sigma 24-70 f2.8 EX... its big, and heavy (which i dont mind) but it doesn't attatch as easily as my canon lenses... It's the definetly the canon version...it works fine...it just takes some finesse to get it on and i really don't want to be switching it on and off constantly and risk damage to either the body or the lens... I mean a little trouble lining up is to be expected with a product that isn't made by the camera maker. That isn't the problem, maybe it lines up perfect and not lining up is all in my head...in either case...since the lens is so big and heavy.. is it a problem to leave it attatched to the camera at all times. It seems like it'll be quite a while till i have the $$ for the other lenses id like so this will be the one im using the majority of the time now. Will it damage the mount plate or do any other damage to leave it attatched all the time?...please forgive my ramblings !

I have several Sigma lens that I use on my Canon 20D. One of them is the 70-200 F2.8 which is a huge lens. I've never had any trouble mounting it on the camera. My other lens include several Canon lens and one Tamron lens. All of them mount with equal ease. Can you be more specific about the problem you have in mounting it?

There is no reason that the lens would harm the camera if it was left mounted all the time.

Cheers,
rfs

I dont really know how to explain it....it just feels like i have to turn it a little harder than my canon lenses. The zoom ring is also a tad stiff....I'm assuming this is because it's brand new

If the lens is much heavier than the camera, hold the lens, not the camera.

Definitely OK to leave it on all the time. In fact I'd even say if it were your only lens you use it would be *worse* for the camera to remove it after each use, primarily because you could get more dust in the camera body that way.

I had a 24-105 permanently affixed to my 30D (for nearly a year?) before I got the 24-70 and 70-200 2.8's...
