Mounting a teleconverter on a minolta camera

I have a Minolta maxxum 300si and it came with a tamron mc teleconverter 2x for minolta md. Do I need any other hardware or adapters to mount this as it doesn't look like it will fit. Any assistance will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

srich

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,

As long as you can get the correct Tamron Adaptall 2 mounting for it, then it will fit. They're no longer made and not always easy to obtain at reasonable prices.

Adaptall 2 mounts for Minolta autofocus were never made, but the earlier MD mounts were, and they will fit any Minolta or Sony SLR. Obviously, there will be no autofocus but you will also find that you have to focus with the aperture ring wide open and then manually meter and take the shot after you have selected the aperture which you require.

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.

This is a lens for Sony/Minolta cameras. It is not compatible with the Nikon D90. Hence a Teleconverter for Nikon will not work on this lens to mount it to a Nikon D90.

Minolta 7000 Maxxum


The Minolta Maxxum 7000 uses a Minolta A mount, which is also used on the Sony Alpha series, as they bought out Minolta's technology. All Maxxum lenses should work for the most part on the Sony Alpha series of DSLR's, including the autofocus.

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!!
