    I browsed Ritz Camera on line to look for Friday sales and I saw Quantaray lenses on their site. I also checked eBay and many of the listings mentioned how Quantaray items are made by Sigma.

    Anybody use Quantaray items? How do you like them?

    Stay away from anything that says Quantaray. Even their filters.

    Quantaray is to cameras as to what APC is to ricers.

    C'mon guys, not everyone can afford pro glass. I'd say look at Sigma or Tamron first, but if the price is right on a Quantaray, why not?

    I bought a Quantaray 70-300mm on eBay for $50. It has good color, is decently sharp, but it does have a lot of chromatic aberration, even stopped down to f8. For what I paid, I'd say I did alright.

    And, for what it's worth, it shows up as a Tamron in my metadata. :mamoru:

    the only quantaray thing i've owned is a tripod 2 years ago, it broke so i exchanged it, and that one broke as well, so i traded for store credit and bought a manfrotto with extra cash :bowdown:
