Sony Minolta AF Quantaray (Sigma) 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Macro

Dear sir or Madam. I am the proud owner of a Sony Minolta AF Quantaray (Sigma) 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Macro. This is one of your old lenses. I have searched your website for any specifications for this lens, however I could not find any. Will it be possible to email me the Lens specification.

Thanks

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.

SOURCE: Sigma lens on Sony makes grinding noise, AF no longer works

The problem you are encountering is with the screw head interface between the lens and the camera body. They just are not locking together properly. Sounds like you need to send her in for repair.

Check you manual, but it should be no problem- Sony bought Konica Minolta to have the Minolta lens mount (and engineers). Your old lens doesn't have all the internal electronics (and connections) of the new lenses, but every old minolta AF lens i've tried works fine with alpha

Will my Quantaray AF 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 LD TELE-MACRO(1:2) going to work with the Sony Alpha cameras? The A55 in particular?


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Sony A55. If the lens has the Sony mount then it will work fine with the A55.

Will a Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Lens fit my Nikon D80?


All after market lenses are specifically designed for a brand of camera. They are for Nikon, Cannon, Minolta etc.. They can not be cross branded just as you could not use a Nikon made lens on a Pentax.

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

Manual


Quantaray brand lenses are made by Sigma, branded as Quantaray and sold thru Ritz Cameras. Here is this lens on Sigma's site. Or it may be this lens. (Sigma makes 2 70-300 lenses with different lens coatings.)

Unfortunately, neither Sigma nor Ritz makes their lens manuals available online as pdfs, unlike Canon and other major camera and lens manufacturers. Sigma's downloads are limited to just a few of their cameras, and to the brochure for their lenses.

You will need to get your hands on a paper copy of the user manual for this lens. I suggest you go to a Ritz Camera store in person, at a time when they aren't busy (when they first open is usually a slow time). First, ask for a UV or polarizing filter for this lens (or a similar item you might need) - this makes you a "paying customer" so they will be more likely to help you with your next request. Then ask to see the lens, and the owner's manual. Then ask if they can photocopy the manual for you. They are more likely to help if you are asking them to do a favor for you when you are also buying something (the filter) than if you weren't buying anything.

If they aren't willing to photocopy the owner's manual, you can also consider purchasing the lens "as a gift", photocopy the manual yourself, and then after 12/25 return it "because the recipeint already has one". Check their return policy to make sure you can get a refund, not just store credit.

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si


Hello
The Minolta AF lens will fit and work on most of the Minolta AF bodies (it will depend on exactly what lens it is as to the compatibility), you will also find that it will fit and work with the new range of Sony
digital SLR camera bodies.

The Quantaray lenses are a little bit more difficult as Quantaray make lenses for several different types of camera body, it should mention on the lens what make the lens mount is for. If you post further information about the lenses it might help.
