What is T Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens with 2x Teleconverter


The T-mount is a universal thread developed by Tamron which allows various adapters to couple a lens to a wide variety of camera brands. If a lens is listed as having a T-mount, it means that the lens can be coupled to your camera if you have a T-mount adapter for your camera.

A 2X teleconverter (often called a doubler) enables a lens of a specific to be doubled. For example, the lens referenced above actually is a 650-1300 lens but with the 2X teleconverter the focal length can be doubled to a maximum focal length of 2600.

I have an Opteka 600-1200 telephoto lens which I consider to be a decent lens for its very low price. I also have a doubler which came with my camera kit. That means I can increase the focal length of my lens to 2400 but I cannot imagine any reason to do so. At it's full zoom 1200mm focal length, this lens is very difficult to handle and must be used on a tripod with a remote shutter release.

It is extremely time consuming to focus and must be focused very accurately because it has almost no depth of field. At 1200 mm, the slightest breeze or vibration will cause the picture to go fuzzy from movement.

The lens is also large and does not fit conveniently in a camera bag so it rarely goes with me unless I know for sure that I will need it. It is not particularly good for sports action shots because the action will be over before you are ready to shoot the picture. With very bright light (such as the mid-day sun) and pre-planning and pre-focusing you might be able to get some interesting sports action shots. Say you're at an automobile race and you know a car will be coming into view at a certain spot, you can set up for that spot then trip the shutter when the car pops into view.

All that being said, I think this is a good lens to have in my bag without spending $10,000 plus for a really good lens of this size.

What camera does a sigma telephoto lens F6 fit?


Sigma makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts to fit a variety of camera brands. Without knowing the type of mount on a particular lens, it's impossible to say which brand(s) it fits.

New Camera


Get the Canon EF 70-300mm IS USM about $500 and EFS 17-85mm IS USM about $300. The 75-300 all of them I would not use them 4 a body cap. Camera is fine or step up to XSI.

Will not autofocus


Hey shutterbug72,
According to the manufacturer the first thing you should try is cleaning the lens contacts with an eraser. If that doesn't work you could try removing the battery and reinserting it to reset the camera. It seems to me that if there was a compatibility issue going on you should have seen that from the start. As far as what lens you should buy both Tamron and Canon make very good lenses, but with Canon lenses you shouldn't ever have compatibility issues. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Attaching it to a Canon EOS 400D REBEL XTI


Totally different lens mounts, you might be able to get an adapter ring, but it wont function amazingly. Honestly, you're better off just selling this lens and buying a Canon 70-300 instead.

Nikon lens problem


It is hard to answer your question, since you don't say what kind of accident took place.  Since that camera is over 2 years old, I would have to think that for less money that it would take to fix, you can get a better replacement.  For example, the Nikon L15, which you can pick up for ~$140 is an 8 MP, 3x zoom like the 5900, but adds image stabilization as well.  It is about the same ease of use, but has some nice new features, like Nikon's D-Lighting which helps recover shadows.

Quantary 100-300mm telephoto lense


I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can 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 cameras 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)
