Question about Quantaray AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 High Speed Auto Focus Zoom for Minolta

1 Answer

Cameras compatible with Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens

I have a Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens which I bought with my Minolta SLR film camera. I am now in the market for a new digital SLR camera, but I don't know which one I should buy that would be compatible with my lens. I don't want the wonderful lens to go to waste.

Is there a particular specification or size of the lens for the new camera that I should be looking for?

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.

Quantaray lens


You did not mention which lens. Some Canon digital cameras will only take EFS lens, others take both EF and EFS. Also there are other types of lens mounts made by Canon.

Quantary 70-300 1:4-5.6 LG, is it compatible with digital canon camera?


Quantary makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens for a Minolta, for example, will not fit onto a Canon. Assuming you get the lens with a Canon EF mount, then yes, it is compatible with a Canon digital SLR.

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

Hard to say without more info.

Is the lens just bought new? If not, it likely is 'chipped' for the Canon AF film cameras. I do not recall if Quantaray rechips their lenses. I believe Sigma does theirs, but not sure about Q~. If you got the paperwork with the lens, contact a repair center or Quantaray.
Contact US1 Photo at 877-300-8070. they are a Quantaray dealer. Ask for the number to the distributor, warranty repair facility and for the number of the quantaray home office. One of them should help you get the right lens.

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.

QUANTARAY FOR MINOLTA AF 70-300MM compatibility


Usually mounts are unique to a camera manufacturer. There are exceptions. Sony has the Alpha; lenses for the Konica-Minolta are the same mount. Your AF (autofocus) lens will work on it. You might also consider picking up a Konica Minolta 5D or 7D.....they're no longer made and hence are cheaply had.

The MD and Rokkor lenses won't work on the Sony Alpha.
THIS IS A CHEAP LENS (<$50 VALUE) SO I WOULDN'T LET IT DRIVE YOUR DECISIONS!!
