Is there a micro focus switch on the lens
On my lens if switch to Micro Mode the Auto focus is disabled, Also it is a stupid question but you are using a AF lens and not a xi series or manual focus lens.

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

SOURCE: Turn auto focus off?

On the left side of the lens right below the silver lens release button there should be a grey switch with the initials "AF" and "M". Switch it to "M" for manual.

Check the switch on the side of the mirror box/mount. It is located below the release button to remove the lens.

I have a sony a 230 camera the halfway focus won't work anymore, any fixes?


Check that the camera or lens AF/MF switch hasn't moved to MF.
This will turn off the auto focus on the camera.
You can see them both in this photo.

if you want to use your current lens, then your only new choice is any of the Sony Alpha dSLR's as they use the Minolta AF mount.

However... your lens will not operate correctly. You may have to manually focus and the auto iris stop down might not work. The only way to find out in advance to to take your lens along to a Sony stockist to try it out, but phone them in advance to ensure that they have a display model with a freshly charged battery.

You will definitely find that your 35mm film lens will have a different angle of view; the smaller sensor on the dSLR means that your lens will appear to have a 1.5x teleconverter fitted. You'll also likely find that your lens will be optically inferior to the modern offerings simply due to greater advances in computer aided design and materials technology, although the actual build quality of your lens may well be better.

On balance, I'd suggest that you continue to use your Minolta 35mm camera and if you buy a digital SLR system just make a clean break and pick whichever system suits your needs best. Unless you already own late model 35mm AF Nikon or Canon gear there's really very little to be gained by trying to use your old equipment on the new dSLR body and potentially a lot of handling issues to interfere with taking photos.

It is likely to be an issue with the auto focus in the lens. You will get the grinding noise even if you switch the camera on in manual focus, but not if you take pictures in manual focus.

Sony a100 match ups


Yes, when Sony took over Konica Minolta they inherited the Maxxum lens mount (Minolta's AF lens mount system). the only Minolta lenses which don't work are the earlier manual focus type.

Sony have finally launched three new models which are the first to be clearly Sony designed, but they have still retained the Maxxum lens mounting.

Cameras compatible with Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens


Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.

One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.

To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.

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.

I have a Quantaray 70-300 f1:4-5.6 LDOMacro. I have been using it with Minolta QTsi Maxxum SLR. I am looking into getting a Digital SLR that I can use my lens with. Is there one out there.

here is a link to an ebay search for minolta to canon eos adapter, they sell for just about every camera. i know it sucks, buying a new camera that wont work with your favorite lens, but i think you might be better served focusing (couldnt help myself) on camera features and pricing. i own a canon dslr and love it. sigma has a cool dslr. it has a three layer image sensor, with a removable on sensor ir filter. the ir filter thing is really cool.

Interchangability of camera lenses


rtjohnson1,
the minolta 7000 was the first auto focus slr. you can still buy a good working 7000 on e-bay for around $40.00 to $50.00, or take a 7000 lens to a camera store and try it on a newer model.

Using sony alpha 100 with cosina 28-300


That lens was made for minolta cameras. and it would need to be whats called. "Re-chiped"
if you get a hold of the company that made it then they usually do it for free. If they still have parts.
So what happens is. even though it is an auto focus lens. It wasnt set up to work with sony.So you jsut need the lens and camera to speek the same language in theory.


If you took it to a camera store they should beable to help you get in contact with the company.


Hop that helps,

Sony A100 compatibility


It would help if you actually gave details of the lens!

All the old Minolta AF and MF lenses will fit the Sony A100, but only the AF are auto-focus compatible.

Since the Maxxum 7000 was an AF camera, I would image that that is an AF lens pictured on the front.
