I recently picked up a Quantaray 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 LDO macro EF lens for my Canon 350D body. I am new to SLR's. I have been searching this site all day (like 12 hours) and can't find any info on this brand. does that mean that it is bad or just unused? I do wildlife mostly. I like the photos I have gotten from it. but thay are mainly point and shoot, except I like to manual focus. Is it something I should plan on keeping or look to sell and get something different? Thank you all. It has been fun seeing all of your photos and reading your posts.

Heard of the brand but not that particular lens. If you enjoy the photos from it then keep enjoying, best off upgrading when you actually find a limitation, not just because people tell you to.

Thank you. That has to be about the best advice I have read all day.

I believe that the Quantaray 70-300mm may be a Tamronexternal link lens rebranded for Ritz Camera.

Quantaray is mainly Sigma, actually, but yes there are some other companies that rebrand as Quantaray. The teles are mostly Sigma.

They're low end lenses, but you get a lot of reach for very little money.

If you get an Err99 mounting the lens, send it to Sigma and they'll fix it.
