It depends on the age of the lens and a little luck. Many old Sigma lenses don't work. Even it is working, it is not a good lens, you will be way better of with a EF-S 18-55 IS or 18-135 IS. Old and cheap zoom lenses are no match for your camera.

thank you so much for replying
the lens 18-55 came with the camera

can you recommend a good canon len that is good just like the old sigma 28-200 or perhaps anything else?

Any lens today is way better than that piece of junk...

If you want something good then the combination of EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS and EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS would be my recommendation!

If you are looking for something with a wide range like that older Sigma lens, check the Sigma 18-250mm DC OS HSM lens. My experience with this lens is that for a superzoom, it's very good. Any lens with a range like this is a compromise in image quality and, generally speaking, you'll get better image quality out of two or more lenses that cover that range. What lens or lenses are best for you matters on what you want to shoot.

It depends if the lens is 2005 or younger, then it probably works. If it is older it may work as long as you shoot it wide open (only possible with the camera set to Av or M).
