Is Quantaray a rebranded Tamron ?

i was talking to a Ritz Camera CC rep this pm and he mentioned to me that the Quantaray 70-300mm lens that they are selling is a branded Tamron 70-300mm DI. can someone confirm this to me?

thanks a lot,

Hey Cruiser!

Been a while. Yep. What you have there is a rebadged Tamron. I asked the same question in this thread a few weeks back. It should be a decent lens.

P.S. How's the shooting going?

Was just about to hit the sack, actually, then I spotted your post and said yeah, gotta put up one more for you.

Things going crazy over here at our side too. I guess it's people getting back to work after being in "holiday mode".

Ole actually gave me a couple tips on a shot I took of my local city hall that I screwed up. Thank goodness I shot it in raw.

Hope to see some more shots from you soon...post some will ya?
