You can use a Quantaray lens that fits on a Canon EOS film camera body on any Canon EOS camera body - film or digital. Your choice of EOS camera depends on your budget and your needs.

I recommend starting out with a used or refurbished model - let someone else eat the depreciation on the camera. After you have shot with a digital SLR for a while you will have a much better idea what features matter most for your needs and can make a better decision what new(er) model is the best fit for your money. Obviously you know a bit about photography having used a film EOS camera but there are many things that are different about a digital body. One of the biggest differences is that they come out with a new camera several times a year, and a camera body that is just 2-3 years old will be 2-3 generations old, and worth only a small fraction of the price it sold for new - unlike film bodies that held their value much longer.

Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon camera. Assuming you have a lens with a Canon mount then yes, you can use it on your Rebel.

The older lenses will work with the Canon digital cameras, but they will be manual focus and you will need an adapter. The adapters are available at camera shops like B&H. I use some older lenses for macro.

I bet they are not AF lenses. There are adapters that add the AF contacts to "fool" the camera but increase the zoom. You can get used lenses from many "on line" camera stores with warranties for a few months.

Aperture wont adjust on my canon rebel xt


If it's an older lens, for EOS film cameras, Quantaray might upgrade it free - contact your local Ritz Camera store ( it's imported by Ritz ) or find a repair center for Quantaray online.

I have the same problem. So far I've contacted Sigma (I believe this is the company that manufacturers the Quantaray lens for Ritz) and they requested I send them a photo of the lens. I just googled sigma lens to find sigma support. I will update you all with any response I may get.

I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can really do. Appararently, the quantaray, being an older lens, wasn't made to work with this latest era of cameras. Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital cameras1.gif and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera1.gif Resource page (www.dcresource.com

It doesn't work with my digital camara


Some of the early Quantaray lenses, designed for the EOS film cameras, need to be upgraded by Quantaray. Contact your local Ritz Camera, or go to their support page online to find out if an upgrade chip is available for your particular lens, so it can be used with a digital EOS
