Summary: I'm using it in my dental office. It is performing very well! All aspects of the lens is fine!The rest of this is to satisfy the 100 character requirement for the review. Some times fewer words says more than a lot of words. Hopefully nmow I am to the 100 word limit!
Summary: This lens seems to overexpose most pictures. The pictures are not very sharp in most cases. But the 90mm macro end is pretty good, or at least a cheap way to get some macro shots. Overall, if you can afford a better lens do so.
A decent, general purpose lens, except for the plastic mounting base

Summary: I was looking for a wide angle to short telephoto zoom lens to fill in the middle of my kit--my other two lenses are a Pentax DA 18-55mm zoom and a Sigma 70-210mm zoom--and this lens fit the bill nicely, especially for the price I paid. Quantaray was the house brand for camera accessories including lenses, flashes, filters, and camera bags sold through the now defunct Ritz/Wolf Camera stores.
Pretty good value for money as a 90 mm macro, otherwise an average lens.

Summary: As used like a normal zoom- lens, this is an average lens like those kit- lenses sold with (D)SLR: s. I use it only locked at 90 mm macro- mode and at this service it provides pretty good value for money.
Summary: From what I've read, this Japanese-made lens was manufactured by Sigma; its appearance and specifications are very similar to a Sigma 28-80mm lens. I can't give this lens an Excellent rating because it's not an outstanding lens, but at its price point (less than $50), it's a real gem. Other autofocus lenses at this price point are generally below average in sharpness, color and contrast. But the Quantaray is quite sharp — as sharp as my kit lens (Pentax DA L II 18-55mm).
