    0 4/5 Immortally Yours - See all my reviews This review is from: Quantaray Lens 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6 for Minolta (Electronics) I'm not a photographer by any sense of the word, but I got my first DSLR camera and this lens was one of the first lenses I got as a mid range zoom/macroI originally bought this off Ebay and paid about 35.00 dollars for it. I was fully expecting to get what I paid for... a cheap, be happy if you get any pictures at all, camera lens.What I got was surprisingly vivid details on the pictures I have taken with this. I use the lens a lot for Macro shooting and my jaw drops a lot on how much detail is retained when zooming in on my pictures for cropping. (Attached photo of the bee is a good example)My first lens was a 250.00+ prime lens but to my surprise this 35.00 lens gets more usage.From what I understand Quantaray lenses are refurbished Sigma lenses, so it may be the luck of the draw on what you get. To me, I say well worth the purchase if you are starting out and wanting to play around with what DSLR's can do. 0, May 12, 2012

    0 5/5 deirdrebardowl - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Quantaray Lens 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6 for Minolta (Electronics) I bought this to replace the kit lens for a sony body because I upgraded. I just wanted something cheap to maybe sell it with, turns out this lens is more that I expected and I'm probably keeping it for my new a77. I didn't pay much attention to specs other than the range it can cover but this is a macro lens, which I previously didn't have for my kit. I was a little hesitant about having a zoom lens for a macro but this little puppy works flawlessly with both my alpha model bodies in auto and manual focus and so far images are crisp and clear. I will update after more use since this is my first day with it. I'm keeping this for my kit and finding something else for my obsolete camera body. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, March 11, 2013

    This lens won't work with Sony Alpha cameras

    I have six Sony Alpha cameras (A77II, A77, A65, A700 x2, and A300) but no single one will recognize this Quantaray 28-90mm f3.5-5.6 AF lens (All will work with Minolta, Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina AF lenses.) Yes, this Quantary lens can be attached to the alpha camera body without any problem but the camera simply won't see it. For the higher-end Sony Alpha cameras, you can set the camera in manual focus mode to focus and set the camera to "release the shutter without lens" mode, the camera will fire but there is no way you can control the aperture at all (it shows "F--" and always stays wide open.) As for the Sony A300, it doesn't have this setting, so the shutter will be locked and no photo can be taken. Please be also aware that this is not really a "macro" lens. Yes, you may zoom the lens to 90mm and take photos at 0.7m, but the magnification is only 1:4.4. So my advise to the Sony Alpha owners, don't waste your time and money on this Quanaray lens.

    A Great Versatile 100-300mm Lens for Nikon Cameras

    I have owned this Quantaray 100-300mm Auto-Focus Lens for over 10 years and it has been a great lens in my collection. I first purchased this lens to use with my Nikon N65 35mm film camera with auto-focus. Then I upgraded to the Nikon D80. I actually picked the Nikon D80 so that I was able to continue to use all my Quantaray lens that I had purchased over time for my Nikon N65. All the lens gave a amazing result over the years with my Nikon D80. I recently upgraded again to the Nikon D7000 and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this AF lens also works with the D7000. I have not had time to really test this lens with the D7000 to compare it to a DX lens, but I'm more than satisfied with the results so far.I'm not a professional photographer in the sense that I'm picky about f-stops and detailed lighting and those kind of things. I'm just an average photographer that has been give high praise a number of times for photos I have taken.

This review is from: Quantaray - Zoom lens - 28 mm - 90 mm - f/3.5-5.6, for Pentax Auto Focus (Electronics) The first lens came with another camera I bought at another site..I started using the lens off and on, really liked it.I had never had an Quantaray lens before,"BUT" it was doing a good job..Then I made a mistake when I was loading my gear in the Jeep..Camera slipped out of my hand,bounced off the seat and landed on the floor board. The lens just popped right off the camera and the mount was broken..Made from some kind of pot metal, anyway not very strong..I liked the lens enough to buy another one..Just be careful and not bang them around 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, December 19, 2009

    Good BARGAIN Lens

    If you are looking for an inexpensive 500mm or 1000mm lens to use occasionally or just for fun, this one is a good choice.If you have been drooling for a long lens and are thinking about this one over a 300mm with autofocus, then you are making a horrible choice!This lens does exactly what it says, which is why I got one and am happy with it. Some things you should know before buying:1. The 'T-Ring' adapter is a MUST or it won't attach to your camera.2. It is COMPLETELY MANUAL!!! NO autofocus, manual apeture, manual focal length adjustment... And you can't use it on your camera unless you put the camera in MANUAL mode. You cannot use it with a preset setting like landscape, portrait, auto, action, etc. So if you are not comfortable and confident in setting your own shutter speed, apeture setting, and focusing by hand, this is not for you.3. You MUST use this lens with a tripod. MUST! If you try to hand-hold the lens... 5/5 Amazon Customer "Joe63251" (St. Louis, MO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Okay lens for the poor SLR owner

    Quantaray is Ritz Camera's store brand, and Quantaray lenses are made by Sigma, one of the "big three" third-party camera lens makers (the other two being Tamron and Tokina, all three are Japanese companies).While Sigma lenses are usually pretty good quality, the Quantaray line is rather uneven, probably due to lowered manufacturing specs. This 28-200mm lens (or 42-300mm on the D70 and D100 digital SLRs) feels rather "cheap", and the autofocus is noisy and slow. On the other hand, the same can be said for low-priced Nikkor (Nikon's own brand) lenses.On the plus side, this is a lot of lens for a decent price -- again, I want to emphasize that if you are willing to look around, you may be able to find better-quality Tamron or Sigma lenses for the same price. You get a focal range that covers wideangle to moderate telephoto, and this is a relatively modern lens, so its optics is good. Remember, this is a poor photographer's lens, as it cannot compete with... 3/5 Gadgester "No Time, No Money" (Mother Earth) - See all my reviews, January 8, 2005

    Great Lens

    0 4/5 K. Mast (PA) - See all my reviews This is an awesome lens. I bought it to replace the crappy lens that came with the digital rebel xt. It really is great. Sharp autofocus and great aperture range. This is perfect for what I do(astrophotography). The only reason i gave it four staars was that the autofocus can be a little sluggish but you can hardly notice it. Great value for a great lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, March 2, 2006

    Great "All-n-1" Auto-focus Value at a Low Cost

    0 5/5 TX-One (Plano, TX USA) - See all my reviews The Quantaray 28-200mm/F3.8-5.6:EF is an "all-n-1" auto-focus zoom. One use is as a good walking around lens for those on a budget. Another use may be for those learning photography. While not an "L series" Canon at this price, I have found it to be an affordable value with good optical quality and a sharp autofocus. It has a great aperture range in appropriate light (i.e., it is not a "near dark" auto focus use lens ... get a tripod and switch to manual 'M' mode on the lens for that).Currently, (Fall 2010) you can pick these up used for just over $100. I think this lens is well worth the money. 0, October 5, 2010
