No. Minolta and Canon cameras have completely incompatible lens mounts.

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.

Quantary 70-300 1:4-5.6 LG, is it compatible with digital canon camera?


Quantary makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens for a Minolta, for example, will not fit onto a Canon. Assuming you get the lens with a Canon EF mount, then yes, it is compatible with a Canon digital SLR.

I have a Quantary zoom lens 28-90mm "for Minolta AF". It fits my Sony alpha350 camera, but the camera does not recognize it - says there is no lens. What's up?


Fitting is not always the solution. It is the software which recognises the hardware attachements. Either upgrade your camera software or use only the manufacturer recommended add ons. aqeelhafeez@hotmail.com

I have Quantaray 28-90 mm aspherical lens and want to know what digital bodies it would fit on.


With right adapters it should fit in any camera. At least Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Pentax. The adapters are 10-20$ each and easy to fit in the lense.

Quantaray 251664736 compatibility


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.

Using vivitar 70-300 lens


Yes and yes. Bear in mind that not all features may work. You probably won't get autofocus or metering with the Nikon D90, for example.

Minolta SLR Lens on Sony - Does it work.


As I understand it, Sony bought Minolta, lock, stock, and barrel. Theoretically the lenses should fit and may work on manual, but I'm very sure they will not totally work on sony digital cameras. I wouldn't even try to fit them as the autofocus system on the camera may be damaged.

What cameras does this lens fit?


Vivitar made this lens with several different mounts, including mounts for Canon and Minolta cameras. Your best bet is to take the lens with you to a large camera store. The staff at the store may be able to simply identify which mount your lens has, or they can try the lens on different camera bodies to see which it fits.

Quantaray 70-300 zoom lens


The lens is for Minolta/Sony A mount and you are trying to use it on a canon body which has the contacts and mounting points in a different position so it isn't going to work as well as a lens with the correct mount for the body you are using if at all you will need to get the lens mount changed or an adapter built to allow the lens contacts to mate up in the correct order
will be cheaper to buy a camera body to fit the lens or a lens that fits the canon mount lens

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si


Hello
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.
