Flash problems with Quantaray 28-200MM F3.8-5.6

I have a sony a a100 that i am using Quantaray 28-200MM F3.8-5.6 for minolta on. It works fine for outside pictures, however, the metering doesn't seem to work....all my pictures come out dark. Also, I will occassionally get a reading on my camera that says "no lens attached". Any ideas?

thank you

Re: flash problems with Quantaray 28-200MM F3.8-5.6

Try setting the camera to the Aperture Mode A or the Manual Mode. I am assuming that you are using the AUTO mode and due to this the aperture is set really high may be a 60 ( read the green text through the eye piece and the second number will be the aperture number)

With a low aperture number like 5.6 or so the photo should be clear and not dark. I am not an expert user but this could be a solution if the problem was occurring when the camera was in AUTO mode.

Try using an external flash. even if you just borrow one inside the camera store. make sure that i isnt just the lens being too long for the on camera flash.

as far as not working all the time. that is a little more complicated. I would go back to the camera store where you said you took it and ask them to call their repair center and give you sigmas address. if you send it to them directly then there is no fee to have it checked out. and you will actually get it back quicker.
Sigma is the one that made that lens for quantaray.

Will this lense work with a Canon Rebel T31 ?

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.

The Sony ALpha camera actually use a Konica/ Minolta lens mount. a 500 or 1000mm lens won't have any really mechanical connection to make, so if you can find the lens with a Minolta mount , it should fit. BTW- most of those long lenses require a T mount adapter to fit on ANY camera-

Quantaray 70 - 300mm for Minolta AF (25-166-4546)

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

It depends on the lens mount on the lens itself. Each camera maker uses a different mounting system. In some cases, a camera shop can change the mount on a third party lens like a Quantaray.

If you happen to know the camera that the Quantaray was initially used on, that helps answer your question. A Nikon will not fit on a Canon, will not fit on a Pentax, will not fit on a Sony, etc, etc.

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.

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si

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.

How does it stop working? Do you mean it doesn't auto focus anymore?
Many longer focal length lenses wont auto focus with 2x teleconverters on them.
