Quantaray makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Minolta mount will not fit onto a Canon camera. A lens with a Canon mount will work just fine on a Canon camera.

Your problem is a simple one: technology doesn't stand still.

Your lens was designed to work with Canon technical protocols which existed seven years ago and things have advanced somewhat since then.

With some third party lenses it's possible to send the lens to the manufacturer's service agent and pay to have it serviced and updated, but this cannot be done with your lens.

You'll have to buy a more recent lens model if you want to use it on your Rebel T1i. Older Canon lenses should mostly still work (unless Canon clearly state otherwise) as Canon will have taken their design into account on later bodies, but Canon have no interest nor any reason to make their later bodies able to use older non-Canon products.

Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that you have still found it to be of some use and that you take a moment to rate my reply.

I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can 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 Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital cameras and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera Resource page (www.dcresource.com)

Check with your local Ritz Camera store, or find Ritz online. In the past they've been updating the chip in the lens to work with digital cameras at no, or small charge ( Quantaray is a Ritz house brand ).

Why does my Canon EOS Rebel T31 stops shooting video automatically


This could be down to the class of your memory card. You'd probably need a class 10 otherwise the write speed is to low and automatically switches off.

Canon Rebel T1i


I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...

Quantaray lenses


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.

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.

Compatible lenses


All Canon EOS cameras (including the film Rebels and the digital Rebels) can use the same EF lenses.

There are some Canon lenses named EF-S that will only work with recent models of Canon digital SLR cameras, but EF lenses will work with all Canon digital SLRs.
