SOURCE: Frozen zoom lens

Sounds like there is a misalignment internally. This will probably need to be repaired at a shop.

It sounds like a CPU chip incompatability issue. Sigma has that problem sometimes but are usually very good about rechipping at no cost (at least for Nikon-mount lenses). What did they say when you asked them?

SOURCE: mounting a teleconverter on a minolta camera

AS you have found out, the Maxxum AF mount and the MD mounts are much different. They do make tele-converters that allow the use of MD (non-AF) lenses on a Maxxum series camera. You would still need another adapter to make the MD Tamron converter work,

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Lens adaptor


The good news is that it is possible to get the camera to operate with the lens & adapter :-)

The bad news is that you'll only be able to use it in manual mode :-(

To get the camera(s) to actually fire, you will need to change some settings.

For the Maxxum 7:

Go to Custom settings (No.16) and change to 'Lock Off'.

For Maxxum 7D

Go to the settings menu (purple cog icon) and then to sub-menu 3. Change Shutter lock to Off.


With the camera set to Manual mode, you can still use the built-in meter. Half-press the shutter button and you will see a metering scale appear in the viewfinder. This will indicate whether the shutter/aperture setting you've selected will over/under-expose the image. Adjust your settings until the indicator bar is over the zero.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

PS. Even if you could somehow modify the adapter, the lens won't have the necessary electrical and mechanical coupling for the cameras to control it in an automatic mode.
