I went on E-bay and searched "lens adapter olympus om to nikon and got seven (7) hits in the $12 to $20 range. You will need to specify the type of Nikon mount.

Quantaray makes lenses with many different mounts. If the lens has a Canon EF mount then it will fit your camera. If it has another mount, Nikon for example, then it will not fit your camera.

Is it possible to convert a sigma lens to fit a canon body or by using an m42 adapter?


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Canon or M42 mount then there is no problem. If it has a Minolta mount, for example, then replacing the lens will be easier and just as cheap as changing the mount. If it has Nikon mount, you can buy adapters to fit it to Canon or M42 bodies.

How to mount Quantaray 70-300mm F/4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens in Sony Alpha DSLR?


This 3rd party lens (like all of them) makes lenses specifically to fit Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta, etc. camera body mounts. Each has a style mount that is unique. You can not simply mount a lens made for use on a Nikon body on a Sony body.

In order to use this lens, it MUST be the model designed for use on a Sony camera. Functionally, the lens will be nearly identical on any camera it is designed to fit, only the mount (the portion that actually mates to the camera body) differs from one lens to the other.

If you bought this lens without specifying it needs to be used with a Sony camera body (and it is for a different camera) it will NOT mount. Determine if the lens is indeed designed for a Sony camera body. You may find additional letters & numbers on the lens that can help you determine which camera body brand it fits by plugging the number into Google for a search. Additionally, the Quantaray brand is / was a Ritz Camera "house" brand. You could probably bring it to one of their stores and learn all you need to know about the lens there.

Good luck!

Can you use the Quantaray 70-300mm on the Nikon d3000 and or can you use Nikon 55-200mm on the d3000


The Nikon lens, absolutely.

Quantaray makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit on the D3000. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, it will work with the D3000.

Which size of adapter to use to fit it to Nikon D300?


Nikon bodies are thicker than Olympus bodies, thus while Nikon lenses can be made to focus to infinity when mounted onto an Olympus body, an Olympus lens will not focus to infinity were it mounted onto a Nikon body. Thus, no one makes an adapter to fit an Olympus lens onto a Nikon body.

Will this lens (the Quantaray AF70-300) fit my new Nikon D5000? is there an adaptor lens if not? thank you.


It depends on the mount. Quantaray lenses are available for a wide variety of mounts. If you specifically buy the one with the Nikon mount, then it will work. If you buy one with, say a Canon mount, then it won't fit.

I have Quantaray 28-90 mm aspherical lens and want to know what digital bodies it would fit on.


With right adapters it should fit in any camera. At least Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Pentax. The adapters are 10-20$ each and easy to fit in the lense.

I was wondering, are all quantaray lenses interchangeable? I got a quantaray dakota camera, and it says it has interchangable lense capabilities. Does that mean that any lens called quantaray can fit on...


No. Quantaray makes a wide range of lenses, with a wide selection of mounts. This is because the various camera manufacturers like Canon, Nikon, and Pentax have proprietary mounts. A Quantaray lens for Canon will not fit on a Nikon, for example. You need to specify the mount when you buy your lens.
