Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there if it has a lock. You control the aperture through the command dial on the camera body, not the aperture ring on the lens.

How to mount Quantaray 70-300mm F/4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens in Sony Alpha DSLR?


This 3rd party lens (like all of them) makes lenses specifically to fit Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta, etc. camera body mounts. Each has a style mount that is unique. You can not simply mount a lens made for use on a Nikon body on a Sony body.

In order to use this lens, it MUST be the model designed for use on a Sony camera. Functionally, the lens will be nearly identical on any camera it is designed to fit, only the mount (the portion that actually mates to the camera body) differs from one lens to the other.

If you bought this lens without specifying it needs to be used with a Sony camera body (and it is for a different camera) it will NOT mount. Determine if the lens is indeed designed for a Sony camera body. You may find additional letters & numbers on the lens that can help you determine which camera body brand it fits by plugging the number into Google for a search. Additionally, the Quantaray brand is / was a Ritz Camera "house" brand. You could probably bring it to one of their stores and learn all you need to know about the lens there.

Good luck!

I recently obtained a used Quantaray for Nikon 500mm f8 f/8 Mirror lens. I have a Nikon d3000 and I am not sure how to attach it to my camera.


For Nikon AF and manual focus SLRs. The compatible T Mount System makes it possible to use most any single lens reflex camera in combination with various front camera attachments such as telescopes, mirror lenses and slide duplicators. The T Mount is a metal connector that screws onto the compatible front attachment and allows this combination to be coupled to the SLR camera lens mount.

I have a 35mm film Nikon camera with Quantaray NF AF Lenses. I'd like to find an affordable digital camera that I can still use these lenses, any suggestions ?


Those lenses will fit on every Nikon digital SLR. However, the autofocus will only work on cameras with an autofocus motor, the the AF will not work on the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. Note that this is just the focusing: if you're willing to focus manually then those lenses will work perfectly well on those cameras.

Due to the smaller image sensor of most digital cameras, the lenses will act as if they were about 1.5 times longer. Thus a 50mm lens on a digital camera will give about the same field of view as a 75mm lens would on a film camera. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except for the D3 family and the D700, which behave in this respect like a 35mm film camera.

You have to decide what's affordable for you, balancing such factors as weight, ease-of-use, and of course cost.

Will my quantaray tech-10 NF AF zoom lens (for me


Yes, with caveats. The autofocus won't work on D40/D60/D3000/D5000. The metering may not work in all modes on all cameras. Since you didn't specify which camera, I can't give you a better answer than that.

I have 30-year-old Nikon lenses working fine on my D90, but without metering. And the old lenses date before the invention of autofocus.

Cameras compatible with Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens


Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.

One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.

To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.

You can use it, but it will not autofocus on your D60. It will set exposure properly, but you will have to turn the focus ring.
