Can u use the lenses of minolta slr camera with any other digital camera body today and if yes then models may be suggested


If you have manual focus Minolta lenses, then they are not usable on anything other than other manual focus M35mm Minolta SLR's.

If they have the Minolta autofocus mount then they will physically fit onto any of the current range of Sony Alpha SLR's and also the discontinued Konica Minolta digital SLR's, but there will be some issues:-
  • there will be a 1.5x magnification factor due to picture cropping caused by the digital image sensor being smaller than a 35mm film frame. As an example, a 70-200mm zoom lens will produce an image equivalent to that of a 105-300mm lens if mounted on a 35mm camera. Lens apertures are not affected by the 1.5 crop factor.
  • Earlier Minolta AF lenses relied on the camera body providing the autofocus motor. Later Konica-Minolta and Sony models lack this motor so the lens can only be used in manual focus mode.
  • If you have a later SSM (SuperSonic Motor) equipped lens and want to use it on an Minolta Alpha/Maxxum/Dynax 9 (different model names in different countries), the camera needs a complete additional circuit board which is no longer available.
  • Later Sony Alpha SLR's have far greater electronic communication with the lenses used. Many Minolta lenses will not be compatible and as Sony don't support legacy products there is no fix.
In short, Minolta MD lenses (manual focus) can't practically be used on any modern digital cameras, and Minolta Alpha (autofocus) lenses will physically fit onto a Sony Alpha digital SLR, but will act as if magnified and may not autofocus or work at all on a Sony SLR. But there's no harm in trying.

Sorry there is no absolutely definitive answer for you, but I hope that you now understand why and that you take a moment to rate my reply.

What year was the Minolta Maxxum 7000, serial number 16043985? Thanks, Karla


I do not know for certain. You might find that answer on the Yahoo Minolta groups.
The Maxxum 7000 was introduced to the US market in 1985. Sold as the Alpha 7000 in Japan and Dynax elsewhere, it was replaced by the 7000i in a couple years. Then the 700, the 700xi, the 700si, the 70 and the 7 was the last film based 7 series. There
They also made 8000i, 800si, etc. The 9 series was the Minolta Professional cameras and they had the toughest bodies, weatherproofing, higher shutter speeds, and more.
Later models introduced better autofocus, better exposure options, wireless flash, faster film advance, etc.

I have a sony alpha 100 i want to buy a 1993 minolta maxxum 3xi with 35-70 and 70-300mm lenses. Those minonolta lenses are compatible with my alpha?


I took the following off of the Alpha website
"Sony Alpha lens mount
Identical to the Minolta A-type bayonet mount, enabling the use of a large back catalogue of existing Minolta and third party lenses"

I know that the lenses that fit my son's Maxxum will not fit my non-Maxxum Minolta bodies. VERIFY THAT THE LENS YOU WANT TO MATE TO YOUR SONY HAS THE MINOLTA A-TYPE MOUNT.

Sony Digital SLR


You should have no problem, if they are maxuum af. The others should work too- I have an Alpha 100. The alpha 100 works great. I used to run my own photography business, and searched around for quite a while before I found the alpha. There is an adapter ring that i bought, that makes it possible for me to use my favorite old pentax screw mount 135mm f1.6, or any other screw mount, on my alpha 100.
The only drawback I found was you cannot use any other flash(at this time) than the onboard one-or the sony only flashes-which are a little pricey. Different size hot shoe is the reason. I haven't found an adapter yet-but I'm sure someone will make one. The alpha doen't have a real time display- or asa of 3200. I'm hopeing for a firmware update/upgrade to correct this. BUT the newer models with a higher than a100 number do have realtime lcd, and do go to asa3200. And they use either sony mem.stick or CF cards happy shooting

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!!

EVF & LCD Black in shoot mode


I know this is an old post, but sounds like your CCD sensor is shot. Check out this link: http://dcviews.com/press/Konica-Minolta-Oct05.htm My camera did the same thing. It was 2years out of warranty, but Sony (now owns Konica-Minolta) asked me to send it in. When they could not fix it they gave me a brand new Sony Alpha DSLR-a100K!!!! Jid
