Sigma AF 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 APO HSM DG

Hi, I recently purchased the above lens for my Sony Alpha 300 camera. First time I went to use it I found a couple of problems with it. First I could only get it to work while shooting in Auto mode. If I switched to manual, aperture priority or shutter priority, I couldn't get the shutter speed to go below 3 seconds. I also noticed that if I powered the camera off and turned it on again, it would default to auto flash mode and single shot mode. I found it quite frustrating to either have to leave it on all day or keep changing those settings.

I'm thinking that the camera and lens aren't really compatible and I need to buy a new camera. But on the off chance that there's a more economical solution out there does anyone have any constructive suggestions? Thank you for your help in advance.
