Question about Sigma 16mm f/2.8 lens for Konica

1 Answer

The entire camera side of my Sigma 16mm that I used for 32 yrs with my Minolta XE-7 has become loose. At first, I was able to use it by holing it "shut" by hand toward the camera. I need to have it all tightened and set to be used with my particular SLR camera. Please give me a reasonable figure for repair. I had paid $216.00 for this lens in 1977. If the price is too high or there is no place that will repair this item, is there a place where I can obtain the proper set of screws or a good assortment of screws for lenses of that era or even the brand? Thank you, Anthony Catalano ------------------------- A sample of a photograph that I had taken with the above lens: http://www.flickr.com/photos/badwsky/1547907820/in/set-72157594184181611/

Hi, i have the Sigma 70-200mm for Canon EF and the manual focus don't work. The HSM works fine and focuses perfect, but if you choose MF, you can't rotate the focus-ring. Many greetings from Germany! Kai


Hi, not sure if you still have this issue. I have just decided to look into it again, as I had a lot of focus problems with my Sigma 70-200mm HSM lens. Since there is no Sigma support here in Beijing, I took a look - and fixed it.

Here is what I did: On the front of the lens barrel is the rubberised focus ring. This can be removed (gently ply it away from the barrel by sticking a flat bit (or plastic letter opener) between the barrel and the rubber grip. It will come not entirely loose, so you need to work your way around the lens. Keep doing that until you moved it about half way forward. At this point two fixing screws become accessible on the barrel below.

In my case, one of the screws had come loose and that blocked the focus ring from turning, as the screw was blocking rotation in the access hole on the barrel.

Hope this helps others. Simple to fix, if you know how.

I have been offered a SiGMA 400mm F/5.6 manual lens for a minolta mount. Will it fit my camera? Cheers Pete


Minolta had two lens mounts. One for manual focus SLR film cameras and one for Auto Focus SLR Maxxum film and digital SLR cameras. Sony uses Minolta Maxxum lens mount.
If the Sigma 400 f5.6 lens was made for Minolta X-700 series, XG, series, XD series, SRT series, then it will not fit on your camera.

Can I use a sigma flash EF 500 with Sony Alpha 350


Yes, if it has a Minolta/Sony mount. The Sigma EF 500 has been producedin different mount, so that the model can fit different cameras from different producers. A Sigma flash for Sony should have SO-ADI written on it.

MINOLTA 16mm CAMERAS From their modest beginnings after World War Two, the Minolta subminiature format rose to become the most popular Japanese 16mm, still-picture manufacturer and helped Minolta establish itself as a major player in the photographic industry. The revolutionary Minolta cassette is the closest the subminiature market ever came to a "standard" 16mm film format and it was copied by many other camera companies, even outside of Japan. With the exception of the Minox cassette, it is the long-distance runner of the submini world; Minolta manufactured and sold its film cassettes until 1995, and replicas are still being made in the Ukraine and China (?), today. Fortunately, even the older cameras are still very useable since the Minolta cassette used 16mm film (which is still readily available), and they did not require perforations in the film to advance the film. They are very easy to reload. Check out The Darkroom for details.
The original Minolta 16mm camera was designed by the Konan Institute and used the original Konan cassette. This cassette will not fit in any of the Minolta cameras -- or at least cameras with the Minolta name, since Minolta ended up making many cameras with the Konan name. Basically, Minolta bought-out Konan. When Minolta took over, they redesigned the cassette using black felt for the light trap. There were actually several versions, nearly identical. The first was metal, but this was soon replaced with the more standard plastic type -- of which there were several versions. Minolta made two plastic models, identical except that on the second version a notch or indentation was cut into the cassette bridge to make it easier to break off the film take-up lobe for processing purposes. (If you have the newer version it's a good idea to fill in the notch with a little epoxy to make it last longer.) To complicate matters even more, similar cassettes were made by other companies, such as Yashica (which sold a camera that used the Minolta cassette), a company called FR (which sold the film and offered processing), and others. The Minolta cassettes are fairly easy to find today, and will fit in all of the cameras on this list. They will NOT fit in Mica and Konan.cameras. To top it all off, there are even bogus Minolta cassettes being sold. For more information check out the NEWSTAND.

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?
