Question about Kenko Teleplus MC-4 DG for Konica-Minolta Maxxum 2x (MC4AFDGM) Lens Converter

1 Answer

Camera will not recognize the lens

I purchased a Kenko telephoto lens that was advertised to fit a Sony a-350 camera; however, when I attempt to take a picture the camera has a "no lens detected, shutter locked" message. I notice the lens sensors in the camera body. Can I make this lens work on my camera?

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.

NO F stop showing on my screen


No. The lens lacks the electronics to communicate with your camera. You have to switch the camera to Manual exposure mode. Set the shutter speed on the camera and turn the aperture ring on the lens to the desired aperture. You also won't get any metering help from the camera.

I just purchased a Sigma 2.8 f=28mm for canon but I don't know if it will fit my Canon EOS 500 N (same as Rebel G) 35mm SLR film camera. Can you help with this question.


Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.

Can I use a Kenko Lens with a Nikon D60?


If it's an AF teleconverter you will be able to use it and get proper exposure from the camera, but it will not autofocus with the D60. The D60 requires AF-S lenses and teleconverters for autofocus.
