Question about Quantaray 100-300mm F4.5-6.7 Zoom Lens for Canon AF

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 Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital camerasQuantarary for Canon AF 75-300 mm F4-5.6 25-166-45 - 1.gif and can't mesh with the latest and greatest.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.

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.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel K2 35 MM film camera body. What lenses are compatible with this camera?


The Rebel K2 has the Canon EF mount. It is compatible with any EF lenses except the EF-S series. It will also work with third-party lenses that are compatible with the Canon EF series.

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.

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.

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!

From the Canon Help Email - this worked for me: If you are using an EF series Canon lens, please remove the lens and clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser. We also suggest that you remove the film and battery for 15 minutes; ensure that the battery has a full charge and reinstall. If the issue persists, we suggest testing the camera with a different EF series Canon lens. Should this persist with a different lens, then the camera body itself will need to be examined.
