Anyone have any experiance with quantaray?

I happened to stumble on a brand new quantaray 70-300 f/4-5.6 for $60. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with it. How does it compare to say the tamron or sigma?

It is a Tamron, and the older ones were Sigmas. That's a steal, grab it.

Quantaray, Promaster... These are all re-branded Tamron/Sigma/Tokina or the like, lenses...

Regards,
Mike

It's a decent lens and at that price, grab it.

Ritz dropped their prices again yesterday. It isn't $74 any more.

Thank you

4.

Unfortunately for me all the ones here in Houston are just about anything that I can use.

I hava plenty of lenses and two bodies.

The really good lenses are already gone; I consider myself lucky to have snatched this one for $74, because it was the last one they had.

They have the cheap 200 flashes which I really have no use for, but for a really smoking deal I may get one for on camere flash purposes such as fill flash.

And tons of remotes.
