Question about Quantaray 500mm f/8.0 Mirror with Macro Lens

2 Answers

500mm lens will not function with my Canon digital Rebel XT.

Will focus fine but when I try to take a picture, the shutter locks and will not release until I power down. If no solution available, what model 500mm or higher lens can I find that will be compatible with the Canon digital?

    I have a Canon, EOS Rebel XT Digital Black Body. The Quantaray 500mm lens in question worked perfectly with my former Canon, Rebel 2000 EOS analog camera but appears to be incompatible with the digital version.

This lens will work with Canon cameras. I use one on my Canon 30D. It is a fixed F8 you can not use auto or green box because there are not any contacts on the lens to talk to the camera. Its back to the basics manual adjust shutter and ISO to the get a correct exposer. DEFINITLY NOT A POINT AND SHOOT LENS.

It's more than likely not compatible with the XT. 3rd party lenses are rarely completely compatible with the entire product range.  If you cannot afford genuine Canon lenses, I can recommend Tamron lenses. Although double check that it works with your camera.

Dealy on snapping pictures


Check your focus modes to see if you are using one that is different to usual. When a DSLR has no focus lock it won't take a picture. Also verify that the focus motor in the lens is working ok. Google 'lens focus tests' and see what you can come up with.

Auto focus does not work in creative modes


That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right. 8f5da8f.jpg
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. 7528356.jpg
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.

Blurred subject in middle of photo


I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.


In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Auto focus isn't working


Check the lens. If the switch is set to MF then it is in Manual Focus.

Another cause could be custom function 4 - try setting this to 0 for the default
