Question about Quantaray 28-90mm F3.5-5.6 Autofocus Zoom Lens for Minolta

1 Answer

Broken locking ring on Quantaray 28-90mm. 1:3.5-5.6

I dropped my camera (lens pointing up) on a tile floor while on my son's field trip. Two pieces of the sliver locking ring broke off. I can still use the lens to take pictures as long as I keep it pushed against the camera. Is is possible to get just the locking ring? It looks like I could just unscrew the 5 little screws and replace that part. The camera shop told me that it would cost $80 just to send it out to be looked at - new lens is about $90. She actually suggested trying to superglue it back together since I have the two pieces that broke off, I'm a little wary of that. The rest of the lens appears to be fine but I haven't gotten the pics back yet that I took on the field trip.
Thanks for any help,
quiltlady

Hey Quiltzlady,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan

I have a Quantaray 28-200mm AF zoom lens Nikon, I use Nikon D80, are they compatible?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

The focusing ring on my quantaray 28-200 lense will not turn on my d80 nikon camera


If the lens is made for Nikon, it should go on the camera. I just put a zoom lens from the analog days (80-200 f1:2.8) on my D80 and it works fine. Don't forget to put the aperture ring to the highest setting (f 1:22) and lock it.

I suggest the starting point is to contact the vendor where you purchased the lens. They should have the adapter you need. My question is, shouldn't the adapter have been included with the lens? Generally, lenses made to adapt to several camera brands include the correct adapter as specified by the buyer for a specific camera brand or for those that use T-mount.

My daughter dropped my Canon on the tile floor and now the zoom lens will not open. It says "lens error, restart camera." What do I do?


When the camera was dropped, the lens was most likely twisted. So you either have to try to force it back (be gently) or send it in to Canon repairs.

My neice's camera fell onto a tiled floor when the zoom lens was out and now it is bent and the camera doesn't turn on or off is this fixable?


Nope.. they are disposable.. My son worked in a camera store and that was the best "new purchase" feature, a dropped camera.

Is the quantaray 55mm lens hood compatible with a d40


yes and no. no because the lens diameter of the 18-55 is 52mm and yes if you use a stepping ring that you screw on the 18-55 to accommodate the 55mm hood.

My question is about a Quantaray 75mm-300mm


Slide a piece of paper partway under the ring (make sure you leave enough hanging out so you can remove it later) and see if that tightens the action some.

Another low-tech approach is to push the ring to expose the inner barrel, then attack one or more pieces of Scotch tape or masking tape.

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.
