Quantary 28-90 F3.5 zoom lens

Just bought the above lens on eBay for less than $15.00 including shipping. Anyone know anything about it. I figure I can't go wrong for $15 Bucks

Quantary is not a lens manufacturer, it is a store brand name used by Ritz Camera. Most Quantaray lenses, AFAIK, are rebadged Sigmas and possibly Tamrons.

So there's no reason you wouldn't be able to find a decent Quantaray at a good price, although sample variation may be greater than normal.

Looks like you're getting some nice shots from your 135, so who cares if "everyone says quantaray stinks"?

Quantarays are a mixed bag of Sigma and Tamron lenses, with the occaisonal Tokina thrown in. That particular model is a rebadged sigma. Considering Ritz sells them new for ~100 bucks, I'd say it's a great deal.
