Question about Promaster 60-300mm f/4-5.6 for Canon FD

1 Answer

Is this a good lens?

I just ordered my first canon, a Rebel XT. My husband already had 2 lenses for an older canon he got from his dad and one of the lenses is a 60-300mm f/4. Is this a good zoom lense and will it fit my new canon? The other markings are Promaster Spectrum 7, Auto, Zoom, Macro. I can't find any info on it and I am new to this, thanks!

That lens have a FD mount. That means that you need to an adapter to use on a New Digital Canon Camera. The problem with the FD-EF adapter is that the it has a lens inside to correct the focal point. It's usually a very BAD glass. The 60-300 F4 will become something like a 84-420 F8. You will loose all sharpness. My opinion is DONT use FD lens on a EOS Camera.

I was wondering if lenses from a Canon 35mm camera will work with this camera?


When choosing a lens for your Digital Rebel XT, look for EF or EF-S on the lens. Film lenses with the EF designation will work on your digital camera, but AF or older lenses will not fit. Trying to force them on may damage your camera.
When using a film lens on a digital camera, there will be a 1.6x conversion factor. This means that a 50mm lens will be closer to a 70mm lens in reality.

There is a minimal focusing distance for all lenses. If you move closer to the subject than that distance then the camera won't focus on it. Check you lens manual for minimal focusing distance. It is 11 inches for Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, for example.

I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with the original 18-55mm lense and a Quantarey 70-300mm lense. Have had all pieces for 3 years now and everything worked great until last night. Camera focuses and...


This means that the communication with the Quantarey lens is not the right one.

You can try in cleaning the lens contacts and the camera contacts with a pencil eraser or a white erase (flip down the camera so no particles get inside the mirror box).

If still you are having problems, then that means the Quantarey lens is defective, and either needs to be service to be repaired, or you will need to get another zoom lens.

My husband broke a friend's camera lens.


On the Canon website, I cannot find both part numbers. The lens you are naming is a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS (Image Stabalizer) USM Autofocus Lens. The bottom line is if that it is designed for the EOS camera system. You should be fine with this lens. I do not believe there are two different lenses. Are these numbers from the "same" supplier?

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.
