I own a Quantaray 28-90 MM zoom Macro lens. I would like to know its equivalent Nikon lens, which would be one of the following:
1) D or G type Nikkor
2) CPU Nikkor lens other th
I'm not sure why you want to know this. It is a lens fitted for a Pentax camera. Nikon does not make a 20-90 mm Macro lens. Then it has a aperture from 3,5 to 5,6.
It never would work on a Nikon, unless you have an adapter and then it still only could be used in manual mode. You have to do all settings, manual. not only the focus, but also the aperture, shutter time and ISO settings.
I use a Nikor 24-85 mm f 1:2,8-4 D Macro, 1:2.
With this lens when in focus the object is only half the size of the original. I think it comes close to the 28-90, but it is at least 5 times as expensive.
When you are really in for macro photography, you better choose a prime macro, like the 40 or 60 mm from Nikon. both are 2,8 and not as expensive as the zoom version. The results will be much sharper.
When you are talking of equivalent, I don't know what part should be equivalent, because that is important to know.
As long as the focal length is the same and the aperture, you can make the same perspective pictures on the same distance. Only when you buy a DX, or even e lans for a four thirds camera, still the focal length will be the same, but as soon as you put these lenses on a camera with a larger sensor you will get massive vignetting.
A lens made for a full frame (35mm) camera, when used on a DX or four thirds camera, will give the same perspective and will give no vignetting on a camera with a smaller sensor.
