AV flashing in LCD of camera whn zoom attached

I have a pentax ist dl and a quantaray zoom....have had it for 3+ years.  All of a sudden when the zoom is attached to the body of the pentax, AV is flashing in the "lcd" and it won't opperate.  However if I take the zoom off and attach the standard issued lens that came with the camera, the camera works.  What am I doing wrong?

Also check that your diaphragm ring on the Zoom lens is set to the "A" position.

Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Re-attach the lens and make sure the ring (if you have one) is set to "A".

I have an old pentax film camera and bought a sigma 100-300mm f4.5-6.7 DL lens to go with it. I believe the lens is compatible with Pentax dslr. If I was to update to DSLR what other camera brands would it...


If I am not mistaken all lens can pretty much work with other cameras provide that the attachment is compatible. Having said that with the new SLR cameras with auto focus of the lens the lens itself has a motor and it would be difficult to attach it to a manual SLR. Save yourself the headache and if you can purchase same manufacturer for camera body and lens life would be wonderful. In the past I thought that I could save money and do the swap thing and it just became too much. In addition the new cameras that are out has wonderful features like anti vibration, smooth focusing and the sensors are just dynamite. Good Luck

Does a Quantaray Tech-10 75-300 lens fit a Pentax *ist DL digital camera?


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Pentax mount then it will fit onto your camera. If it has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not.

AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached


I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

Quantaray 28-90 for Nikon N65 zoom ring locked up


There is no secret locking switch. If a little gentle jiggling doesn't free the zoom ring, then I can only suggest you take it in to a reputable camera shop for a Clean-Lubricate-Adjust (CLA).

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
