Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DL Aspherical IF Hyperzoom Autofocus Lens for canon slr compatible with Canon t3i dslr


Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

Tip

Lens adapters beware!!..


I just purchase a new camcorder (sony Hd1000u) and order a lens kit with adapters for it, but not everybody has experience to how to install them.. Well.., it just about a bit of common sense. First be sure to know what size of lens your camera will use in my case I need to adapt my new 72mm tele-photo lens to my Sony 37mm. usually when you buy a lens kit they come with different adapters. I use a 37-58mm adapter for my camcorder. but be carefull, make sure that the adapter be place first in the lens to be use, in my case to my 72mm lens. Screw it carefully soft tight then screw in the lens of your camera. Do not ever screw the adapter first to your camcorder lens or you will encounter a big problem when you want to remove it later. Make sure you clean your lens before installing with proper lens cloth & solution. This tip will apply to just any camera with interchangeble lens system.0ccddce.jpg24a835f.jpg

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!

My lens no longer auto focuses and is continually hunting the image, I have confirmed it is a lens problem by changing camera and lenses and it is only the tamron which is a problem


Unfortunately this is a risk when you use third-party lenses. The camera manufacturer's lens to body protocols are not open source nor do they licence the technology to alternative suppliers, so all that companies like Tamron can do is to try and reverse engineer the system.

You only have two possible fixes:-

1. Replace the lens with a Sony Alpha model; or

2. Contact Tamron to see whether they offer an update service for your lens.

The latter is certainly possible with some brands/models, but the costs have historically varied between "you pay just the shipping and handling" right up to "it's cheaper to buy a new lens".

So you either pay a high price for Sony Alpha genuine lenses which are guaranteed to always work with Sony Alpha bodies and firmware updates, or pay repeatedly for third party lenses. "You pays your money and you takes your choice".

Is the quantaray autofocus af70-300 lens compatible with the sony alpha 300


It depends on the mount on the camera.

Quantaray is a 3rd party lens maker. They make the lens itself, then add a mount for each brand of camera lens mount. In some cases, you can have the mount changed at a camera shop.

But the only way to answer your question is to know what camera it was used on previously. If it was used on a Sony, then, likely, yes.

Cameras compatible with Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens


Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.

One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.

To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.

I have a Quantaray 70-300 f1:4-5.6 LDOMacro. I have been using it with Minolta QTsi Maxxum SLR. I am looking into getting a Digital SLR that I can use my lens with. Is there one out there.

here is a link to an ebay search for minolta to canon eos adapter, they sell for just about every camera. i know it sucks, buying a new camera that wont work with your favorite lens, but i think you might be better served focusing (couldnt help myself) on camera features and pricing. i own a canon dslr and love it. sigma has a cool dslr. it has a three layer image sensor, with a removable on sensor ir filter. the ir filter thing is really cool.
