You may fit the old Minolta AF lenses on any recent or current Sony alpha-series digital SLRs.

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

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 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.

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.

I just found my husbands old Minolta maxxum 5 AF Zoom lens camera. I don't know how to zoom in. I am trying to take close ups of my infant and it appears that I can only zoom in on objects 4 feet away....


It's not the fault of the camera itself, it's a lens issue. Zoom lenses can only get so close before the min focus is obtained. Unless you have a macro lens (not suited for portraits, which can focus down to mere inches. Most zooms aren't really designed for close focusing though there are higher end lenses that can be less than 1.5 feet.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, the mounts of Minolta manual focus lenses are different than their auto focus series. Sigma, Tokina and Tamron all make compatible zoom lenses to fit the Maxxum series cameras
