Important: This review shows a lens named Quantaray for Nikon AF 28-300mm 1: 3.5-6.3 LDO Made in Japan Multi-Coated Ø67 (indicated near the front lens), which is a copy of the lens Sigma COMPACT HYPERZOOM 28-300mm 1: 3.5-6.3 LENS MADE IN JAPAN Ø67 (indicated near the front lens).

In the review, I already had a lens SIGMA ZOOM 28-300mm 1: 3.5-6.3 DG MACROwhich is a further development of the Quantaray LDO 28-300 / Sigma COMPACT HYPERZOOM.

In this review, I will only indicate main differences между SIGMA ZOOM 28-300mm 1: 3.5-6.3 DG MACRO and Quantaray for Nikon AF 28-300mm 1: 3.5-6.3 LDO Multi-Coated:

  1. SIGMA DG 28-300 is the third generation among similar lenses from Sigma 28-300 class. Quantaray LDO 28-300 belongs to the second generation and is much older than SIGMA DG 28-300.
  2. Lenses use a different body design and different blend models.
  3. Lenses use different optical schemes.
  4. The Quantaray LDO 28-300 focusing ring rotates 45 degrees, while the SIGMA DG 28-300 rotates 60 degrees.
  5. Quantaray LDO 28-300 focuses noticeably fasterthan SIGMA DG 28-300.
  6. Quantaray LDO 28-300 weighs more than SIGMA DG 28-300.
  7. Quantaray LDO 28-300 uses 67 mm filters, SIGMA DG 28-300 - 62 mm.
  8. Quantaray LDO 28-300 has more lean maximum zoom ratio for macro photography, equal to only 1: 5.1, the SIGMA DG 28-300 is a record 1: 3.
  9. Quantaray LDO 28-300 has different MDF values ​​at different focal lengths. The MDF of the SIGMA DG 28-300 over the entire range of focal lengths remains unchanged.

Optically, the Quantaray LDO 28-300 has much more distortion, but at the same time, in terms of resolution and other optical indicators, the lenses are very close to each other.

  • Alexey

    Thanks for the review. The lens does a good job washing at 300, otherwise like many others. Your photo, as always, is on top.

  • Kiev-Vyshgorod

    The lens “paints” very DEFINITELY ...! And the old man D-90 is still VERY good ... !!! ;))))))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      He “washes” more than “paints”

  • Oleg

    I have and very carefully use sigma 28-300 hyperzoom.
    It so happened that I bought it new for 100 greens.
    17 elements in 15 groups.
    Sharpness is induced by a group of lenses.
    2002-2004 of release.
    What can I say ... the designer is very good.
    If two things coincide: focus and manual stabilization, the pictures are quite good.
    Especially if from 36 MP of my D810 to 13.5 MP)
