No. Unless the lens has a generic T-mount with a Minolta adapter. In that case you can replace the T-mount with a Pentax adapter.

I would like to use my Sigma 600 Mirror lense on Nikon M80 digital camara body lense was used on a Pentax Super A camara before can it fit


Sorry, no. If it fit onto a Pentax camera then the lens has a Pentax mount. The Nikon (I assume you mean the D80 digital camera, or perhaps the N80 film camera) has a Nikon mount. Since the Nikon mount has a deeper flange distance than the Pentax mount, there are no adapters available to allow you to fit a Pentax-mount lens onto a Nikon camera.

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

How to mount Minolta AF 28-80/3.5-5.6 on pentax


Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount Minolta lenses on a Pentax K mount camera and retain either auto-focus, metering, or the ability to focus at infinity.
The reason for the loss of the ability to focus at infinity is because the distance from the mount to where the image forms on a Minolat lens is 43mm, whereas on a Pentax it is 46mm, so the Minolta lens glass would need to be 2mm into the body of the Pentax camera in order for the image to form on the sensor (i.e. have a clear image that is in focus).
The only solution to this is to purchase an adapter with an optical element such as this: http://photo-adapter-llc.amazonwebstore.com/Zykkor-Minolta-MD-Lens-to-Pentax/M/B004PB8142.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=CSE&utm_source=froogle This will allow you to focus at infinity, however you will have to use stop down metering and manual focus, as the electrical contacts will not connect. Also, you can expect a slight loss of image quality when using an adapter.
I personally have a few Minolta lenses that I have wanted to use on my Pentax, so I understand your pain. It is a shame they don't work better.
Thank you for using FixYa!

300mm lens #37614970 what camera does it fit on.


K/AR is a konica mount (not to be confused with Pentax K mounts) - see article
http://photo.net/sony-minolta-slr-system-forum/00UmBi

Usually on Vivitar lenses the last 5mm of mount can be changed / interchanged. What you probably have is the univeral lens, with a Konica K/AR mount.

I was wondering, are all quantaray lenses interchangeable? I got a quantaray dakota camera, and it says it has interchangable lense capabilities. Does that mean that any lens called quantaray can fit on...


No. Quantaray makes a wide range of lenses, with a wide selection of mounts. This is because the various camera manufacturers like Canon, Nikon, and Pentax have proprietary mounts. A Quantaray lens for Canon will not fit on a Nikon, for example. You need to specify the mount when you buy your lens.

Quantaray 251664736 compatibility


It depends on the lens mount on the lens itself. Each camera maker uses a different mounting system. In some cases, a camera shop can change the mount on a third party lens like a Quantaray.

If you happen to know the camera that the Quantaray was initially used on, that helps answer your question. A Nikon will not fit on a Canon, will not fit on a Pentax, will not fit on a Sony, etc, etc.

I have 2 quantaray lenses which I brought with my 35mm SRL are these lenses compatiable with Digital SRL cameras???


Which type of lens mount, what digital camera.
Nikons will fit older Nikon lenses.
Canon it seems only fits AF lenses
Olympus digital only takes their own new mounts.
Minolta lenses will fit the new Sony/Minolta digitals.
Pentax digital will take any K-mount or older thread mount. Need to change some menu setting though. Need a K to 42mm for the thread mounts.
Mounts are all different, so a Canon won't fit a Nikon, Sony or Pentax and vise versa.

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.
