Quantarary for Canon AF 75-300 mm F4-5.6 25-166-4561

I used this lens with a 35mm film Canon EOS Elan without a problem. I replaced the camera with a Digiatal Canon Rebel XTi recently. The Canon EF 35-80MM zoom seems to work just fine on the digital. However, the first time we attempted to use the Quantaray 75-300mm F4-5.6 it caused an error message to appear "Err 99 shoting is not possible. Turn the power switch to and or remove and reinstall the battery. It seems to be ok on flash and in lower light situations. What do you feel is the issue?

    I have the exact opposite problem. My 100-300mm lens works fine, but not the 28-80lens.

    Same problem here. When I called Canon to get help, I was told that the Error 99 meant there was a communication error between the camera and the lens. Since the lens wasn't a Canon, he couldn't help me any further.

I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can really do. Appararently, the quantaray, being an older lens, wasn't made to work with this latest era of cameras. Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital camerasQuantarary for Canon AF 75-300 mm F4-5.6 25-166-45 - 1.gif and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera Resource page (www.dcresource.com

I use the same lens with a canon rebel xs digital. i have the same problem. simply turning the camera on and off makes it go away. there is no problem with the lens or camera it is just that they were not ment to be used together.

Are older Sigma Quantaray lenses that I used with a 35 mm SLR Canon Rebel 2000EOS compatible with new DSLR Canon bodies?


Yes. Bear in mind that many Canon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This results in the image being cropped, narrowing the field of view and making the lens behave as if it was of a longer focal length.

I HAVE A CANON EOS REBEL T2 35MM FILM CAMERA AND AM PURCHASING A CANON TI1. CAN I USE THE SAME LENS ON BOTH CAMERAS?


Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

I have got an EOS Elan II E Film Camera (Cannon). I want to know Cannon has camera with a digital body which suits the lens attachment of EOS Elan II E.


Hi, all canon EOS digital cameras can take all EF lenses. An EF lens from 1989 will fit a Digital body from 2009.
The newer EF-S lenses will only work with the smaller APS-C size sensors on the cheaper consumer bodies.
Hope this answers your query, please take the time to rate!

Lens


Quantaray is a private label lens made for Ritz Camera. They make this lens to fit several different camera brands including Nikon and Canon. The only ones that will fit a Canon camera body are the ones with the Canon EOS mount. If your Quantaray lens doesn't have an EOS mount, then it won't work on your Canon camera. You can take the lens to any Ritz Camera location and they can help determine which mount it has, and which cameras it will fit.
