SOURCE: 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!!

SOURCE: Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40

Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.

Try re-setting the camera? On the D40 it is 'Menu' scroll down one to Custom Setting Menu (a pencil) and click reset 'ok' yes 'ok' this worked for me.

Nikon EM (1979?) When I zoom out with my lens, the picture in the viewfinder is very blurry.


What happens when you turn the focus ring? And just out of curiosity, how are you getting to a 30mm setting on a 35-105mm lens?

What lens can I use the the Nikon N6006 35 mm SLR Camera?


The Nikon N6006 will use just about any Nikon F-mount lens made in the past 55 years. About the only exceptions are some rare (and very expensive) fisheye lenses and the newer DX lenses specifically designed for digital cameras.

I have a Nikon EM and was loading the film and trying to make it work but then all of a sudden the shutter closed and wouldn't open. So I played around with the shutter curtains and now they're broken and...


This question was or has been posted twice. As I said the shutter curtain damage will cost more to repair then the camera is worth and the only thing to save is the lens.

I'm looking to find a used Nikon em camera and I am seeing a lot of them being sold as just the body alone. How much is the lens for the em and what kind of lens does it use?


The EM can use just about any of the old manual-focus Nikon AI and AI-S lenses. It will not use any of the newer AF-type lenses. There are a few exceptions that require mirror lockup, but I doubt you'll see any of them offered for less than $10,000. Any of the old lenses from 15mm to 2000mm will work fine on the EM. The price, obviously, will depend on the particular lens. In the past year I've bought some of them for as little as $20.

Ordered lens for Canon T70 camera


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Check on the box. Your camera has an FD mount. The lens you need to use also has to fit the Canon FD mount. If the lens you received is not an FD mount lens...send it back.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Zoom in close for sports pictures


Do you have a zoom lens on your camera? if not, you can get one for it. your lens will say, for example, 70-200mm, or 18-50mm, for sports, you need at least a 200mm or so to get close enough to the action.

Nikon EM film winding lever is stuck. Can I repair this myself? Purchased at a yard sale with loads of lens and worked great for about 7 rolls of film. Shot part of a roll and lever refused to advance...


Bad news. I have an EM on the junk pile for a similar reason. In my case, the lever stuck and when I tried to advance the film, the plastic on the top of the camera body fractured and the whole mechanism separated. The current E-bay price on an EM body is under $30. Since the EM was made out of plastic, it is not repairable. If you have several lenses, it will be worth the low cost.

I have had Nikons of various models for over 50 years and in my opinion, until they fail such as your has, the EM is probably the most comfortable non-professional 35mm camera to hold and use that Nikon ever made.

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
