SOURCE: Using sony alpha 100 with cosina 28-300

That shouldn't be a problem - Sony bought minolta, and based their DSLR's off the minolta line. This lens is supposed to work with the Sony without any problems.

SOURCE: I am trying to use an older SIGMA 28 - 200 mm f3.5

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.

SOURCE: I have an older Minolta 50mm AF lens that sticks

Having been there with an older Minolta lens, I'd guess the lubrication on the iris has thickened to the point that the leaves are sticking open (normal position except during time when shutter is open). Time to find a local Minolta/Sony authorized repair shop and have it cleaned and lubricated.

Can i use a tamron 90-300 mm AF macro on my minolta 404 si dynax ?

Tamron makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts. If the lens has a Minolta mount then yes, you may use it with your camera.

Lens will not focus, just searches continualy, all other lenses work fine, was working fine then would not focus.

does the camera recognize the lens? I mean does the camera just say F--- or does it show all the information for the lens?

Auto focus stopped working

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera and the lens, this is what usually prevents AF from working correctly.

Tokina f2.8 100mm macro. setting apature and shutter speed. little manual with lens not very informative.

Turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there. Set the aperture and shutter speed on the camera body. You didn't specify which camera you're using, so I'm afraid I can't give you details there.

QUANTARAY FOR MINOLTA AF 70-300MM compatibility

Usually mounts are unique to a camera manufacturer. There are exceptions. Sony has the Alpha; lenses for the Konica-Minolta are the same mount. Your AF (autofocus) lens will work on it. You might also consider picking up a Konica Minolta 5D or 7D.....they're no longer made and hence are cheaply had.

The MD and Rokkor lenses won't work on the Sony Alpha.

My Tokina AF Lens NEEDS HANDS-ON REPAIR (macro)

A: Your local (specialist) camera shop should be able to look at that for you. But it could be that nothing is wrong and you would be wasting your time because:

B: Searching through other forums, it seems that Tokina's official stance is that it is not designed for digital cameras. eg

Unsure of how to use the extra functionality

That is the focusing ring. I'm guessing your camera is set to focus automatically (Little switch on the side of the lens should have settings for either AF or MF, or something similar.)

If its on AF, you don't need to adjust the focus ring.
However, if you have problems with the AF (sometimes it has trouble, especially in low light) you can switch it to MF, and focus manually by changing the ring.

As a general guideline, the more you twist to towards macro, it focuses closer and closer, and infinity futher away (if you're taking a shot of the moon, you want it on infinity)
