It may be easier to find a convertor on ebay. It's not always successful as you have to take into account the distance of the real element form the film plane etc.

Need to clean my minolta 75-300mm internally


Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens? If not, take the lens to a reputable camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional do the cleaning.

Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens, don't do it yourself. Take it to a camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional do it.

Minolta SLR Lens on Sony - Does it work.


As I understand it, Sony bought Minolta, lock, stock, and barrel. Theoretically the lenses should fit and may work on manual, but I'm very sure they will not totally work on sony digital cameras. I wouldn't even try to fit them as the autofocus system on the camera may be damaged.

Camera will not recognize the lens


Hi, I have a Minolta 7D. I bought an M42 screw lens adapter, an almost flat plate, however the camera kept saying "no lens detected". Then somewher on the web I found a solution: On the menue screen I found "Shutter Lock" with the choice On or Off. By switching to off I can now use 42mm lenses. Though there is no AF and the metering works with setting the aperture manually. Good luck and maybe you find the Sony to be the same.

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si


Hello
The Minolta AF lens will fit and work on most of the Minolta AF bodies (it will depend on exactly what lens it is as to the compatibility), you will also find that it will fit and work with the new range of Sony
digital SLR camera bodies.

The Quantaray lenses are a little bit more difficult as Quantaray make lenses for several different types of camera body, it should mention on the lens what make the lens mount is for. If you post further information about the lenses it might help.

Lens adapter


No. Unless the lens has a generic T-mount with a Minolta adapter. In that case you can replace the T-mount with a Pentax adapter.

Broken locking ring on Quantaray 28-90mm. 1:3.5-5.6


Hey Quiltzlady,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
