Quantaray AF 100-300mm f/4.5-6.7 LDO

(6 customer reviews)

This camera glass has a focal length of 100-300mm, which is suitable for taking photos of distant subjects. The lens elements are coated to reduce glare and improve image quality. The build quality of this photographic lens is good and it is durable. The resolution of this glass is decent, but not the best in the market. Bokeh, which refers to the quality of the out-of-focus areas in a photo, is average. This lens can be used in both autofocus and manual focus modes. It is an affordable alternative to more expensive telephoto lenses. The manufacturing time of this lens is not known. The aperture of this lens can be adjusted from f/4.5 to f/6.7, which means that it is not suitable for low light conditions.

Positives:

  • Good build quality
  • Zoom range is very versatile for wildlife and sports photography
  • Decent image quality for the price
  • Autofocus is fast and accurate
  • Compatible with Sony A-mount cameras

Negatives:

  • Aperture range is limited, which means it’s not ideal for low-light situations
  • Image sharpness and contrast could be better, but it’s still decent for the price
  • Lens can be heavy and bulky, which may not be comfortable for extended use

Conclusion:

  • Overall, I think the Quantaray AF 100-300mm lens is a solid choice for budget-conscious photographers who need a versatile zoom lens for outdoor and sports photography. While it has some limitations, it offers decent performance and image quality for the price. However, if you need higher image quality or better low-light performance, you may want to consider investing in a higher-end lens.

Optical design

Great choice mainly for good light conditions Has 8 aperture blades, with this amount of aperture blades you will be satisfied with the result.

Physical characteristics

100 mm long, requires consideration if you want to carry in the camera bag. Weights 410 grams so plan ahead, carry only if really necessary. With a lens filter diameter of 55 mm commonly filter size, offers a wide range of filter options.

    Beautiful Inexpensive Tele Use a TRIPOD for “tack sharp” images. Fast enuf for outdoor pics, use 400 to 640 Asa Iso.

    I buy as many as I can, to sell to new photography students to get them excited about distant images.

    Hi quality, low cost to own.

    Minolta AF 300mm F4 APO HS G I bought the lens as a replacement to a Minolta AF 300mm f/2.8 APO. Whilst it was fairly quick in the AF department and the condition was excellent, it wasn’t complete and the AF motor sounded rough.

    The lens is capable of capturing superb quality images with wonderful classic Minolta colours, but I had been spoiled with the 300mm 2.8, so sold it on. That said, I found my Sigma AF 100-300mm EX DG (IF) APO at least as good as the Minolta 300/4, and that being a zoom, was more versatile.

    I would suggest that you take a look on the Dyxum website for owner reviews as I didn’t own it long enough to write a comprehensive review.

    Quantaray 28-300mm F3.8-6.3 Autofocus on Sony A100/D5 This is the second lense of this type I have bought. Very fast in autofocusing on a Sony A100, extremely fast on the Minolta D5. Some of these have had problems focusing with Minolta and Sony Digital cameras. Contact the factory as they will correct this problem if you send it back. Excellent depth of field at distance but becarefull if you use in close, will defocus background and in some cases that is OK but if you want it to not do that the play around with the F stop and exposure and it will work out OK. Good lense for wildlife, as overall focus is quick on either camera. With the antishake I have been able to pull of offhand shots with good resolution. but that is me, maybe you will be better or worse, try it.
