Question about Konica Cameras

Slight play or looseness with focusing ring on a Konica 50/1.2 M-Hexanon lens.

    The response was unsatisfactory. The item is an interchangeable lens for a Konica Hexar RF, a 35 mm rangefinder film camera. The focusing ring on the lens barrel is slightly loose by about 1/10 mm but the is no play in the optical unit within the focusing mount. There are no external screws to tighten the focusing ring and removal of the rear lens flange reveals no apparent means of internal adjustment. Obviously, a Konica repair tech familiar with the item could fix it but I was looking for advice from your techs to see if it's something I could attempt since Konica is now out of the camera business.

Hi,

I was made to understand that the focusing ring has to be firm that actually seems to give a heavier/tighter damped feel. Anything out of the ordinary indicates a mechanical problem and must be attended to professionally. It might be to your advantage to seek the services of an authorized service center rather than a DIY (do-it-yourself).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove the camera battery for a while to reset the system..

if you had a problem on the lens, this would be a hardware problem and you need to bring to authorized center.

let us know more info regarding this problem. an additional input is greatly appreciated...

thanks

How to reassemble 50 mm pentax slr lens


The problem usually comes about when the focussing ring comes loose. Step 1 remove the 1.front round name ring 2. filter ring. this will expose three screws that hole the focus ring in place. reset the focussing to infinity on your viewfinder then set the ring to the infinity mark and retighten. If the helicoid has come apart then take the mount ring out, aperture ring out, and remove the two focus guides. turn the core out, set the fine thread back until it is almost against the ring directly behind it. make sure that it has at least one and one half turns. then engage the helicoid back. refit the focussing core into the lens and refit the two guides.reassemble the lens and revert to step one to reset the lens.

Nikon 50mm 1.4d does not focus. I can hear the motor make a noise and if I Help it, it will turn. Also it seems stiff when off the camera and you rotate the focus ring.


Sorry to hear about your nifty 50 lens problems. The auto focus motor might have given out and needs repair. You should be able to focus manually with the lens.

75-250mm F3.8-4.5 tamron lens compatible to a


As long as you can get the correct Tamron Adaptall 2 mounting for it, then it will fit. They're no longer made and not always easy to obtain at reasonable prices.

Adaptall 2 mounts for Minolta autofocus were never made, but the earlier MD mounts were, and they will fit any Minolta or Sony SLR. Obviously, there will be no autofocus but you will also find that you have to focus with the aperture ring wide open and then manually meter and take the shot after you have selected the aperture which you require.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Minolta digital camera,s


Simple answer...Take your best working lens to a camera store,and ask to test a sony a100 digital camera. ALL Minolta Maxuum auto focus lenses work with the a100. This includes Konica/minolta type also. If you don't have an auto focus lens, it still might work-but you would loose some features, by swaping camera bodies. In the least it would cost you nothing to find out what camera they would work on, and save you enough money to partly pay for the new camera body you want anyway. Shoot a few stills with your lens on the different bodies-after all your not waisting film-until you find one that is good for you. The camera shop might even have an adapter ring for your lens to the camera body of your choice.

Dropped the lens, nothing broke but focus ring came undone


This will need technical service eventually. Try temporary solution with Sellotape or similar
