The depth of the filter may be enough to push the hood into the visible area.

This will be noticable at short focal lengths. Remember that the image of the hood will be very out of focus, and so even if the edge of the hood would 'land' oustide of the image with a tiny aperture, the out-of-focus fuzz may impinge on the corners of the frame.

Also that the viewfinder area is usually a little less than the actual frame area so you may not see vignetting in the viewfinder that appears on the picture.

One possible solution is to mount the filter on the front of the hood. Some hoods allow you to do this, others don't.

If not your solution is a different hood.

(Note that deep hoods work better, as a certain amount of stray light reflects off the inner surface of the hood.)

I purchased a Tamron 135 mm F/2.8 Lens for a Nikon D40, what else do I need so that this lens will fit my camera?


If you got a lens with a Nikon mount then you don't need anything else to fit it to a Nikon camera.

I bought filters for Nikon d60 n I don't kno how to fit them.now they told me tk buy the 55 mm filters so I bought them because apparently thats the size of my lens which 18-55 mm n now I dunno if the...


They told you wrong. The 18-55mm lens takes 52mm filters, as is marked on the lens near the mount.

You can either trade your 55mm filters for 52mm filters, or else get a 52-55mm step-up ring, which will adapt a 55mm filter for a 52mm lens.

Filters go onto the front of the lens. Remove the lens hood if one is attached. You'll see a threaded rim around the lens. The correctly sized filter (or step-up ring) screws into that.

Hello i have an minolta autocord antique camera for sale it is in good condition. I am wondering what price i could reserve on it when selling it.


Hi.

Believe it or not the camera is worth around £100 or $150 dollars. If you are going to put a reserve price on the camera then i would start with £50 or $80 depending on the condition its in.



Regards.

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.

Minolta 7000 Maxxum


The Minolta Maxxum 7000 uses a Minolta A mount, which is also used on the Sony Alpha series, as they bought out Minolta's technology. All Maxxum lenses should work for the most part on the Sony Alpha series of DSLR's, including the autofocus.

Attachment for filter and hood


If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.


hope that helps,
Caleb

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.
THIS IS A CHEAP LENS (<$50 VALUE) SO I WOULDN'T LET IT DRIVE YOUR DECISIONS!!
