Question about Quantaray 28-200MM F3.8-5.6 Lens for Canon AF
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?
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.
