Pentax Ist DL auto focus not working anymore after using Quantaray AF LD 70-300MM Lens

I borrowed a Pentax mount Quantaray AF LD 70-300mm Tele Lens from a friend of mine and it worked fine, including the autofocus, but when I removed the lens I put my original 18-55 that came with the camera the auto focus stopped working! I tried switching back to the Quantaray only to find out the auto focus no longer worked with it either. The interesting part is that my friend experienced the same problem after using the Quantaray, but thought it was just his camera. Any suggestions? I did upgrade the firmware to 1.03, but this didn't help and also reset the settings without any joy.

It seems to be a connection issue between the Lens and the Camera body. Perhaps the mount is not true to the body Ask Pentax about this their Technical Support Team

Is Quantaray NF AF work with Nikon D3000


Quantaray lenses are available with a variety of mounts. Assuming you get one with a Nikon mount, then yes, it will work with a Nikon camera. However, unless the lens has a focusing motor, it will not autofocus on the D3000. Some Quantaray lenses have such a motor, some do not.

Can I use Quantaray AF 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6 in a NIKON D5100? Thanks.


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Sony mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, it will fit on the D5100. However, the D5100 requires the lens to have an autofocus motor. If the lens does not have such a motor then it will not autofocus. It will still work fine as a manual focus lens.

That lens has a coupling on the lens mount which you'll see rotating when you alter the focus ring and look at the back of the lens. it does not have an in-built focus motor and so will only autofocus with Nikon bodies which incorporate a mechanical AF coupling on the lens mounting flage.

Check your lens there is often a AF/MF auto/manual focus switch
