The Contax/Yashica lens mount was never popular to start with anywhere in the world, and the AF version of that mount was even rarer.

Your camera can only use lenses which are scarce, expensive and hard to find. Just use the camera as it is, and get another camera body with more widely available lenses such as Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Olympus. You can often pick those up for free or very cheaply.

Which is the difference between these two lenses: Yashica lens AF 35-70mm 1:3.3-4.5 Macro c Yashica lens AF 35-70mm 1:3.3-4.5 Do they work of different form?


I would think that the difference is in the "Macro".

Meaning the Yashica lens AF 35-70mm 1:3.3-4.5 Macro would be able to take close-up photos of smaller things like insects.

I hope that helps.

I have a number of Contax lenses I inherited from my father and I was wondering what digital camera bodies they would fit.


Without adapters, none. Contax shared their CY lens mount with Yashica and both produced fine cameras and lenses but neither manufacturer survived the transition from film to digital so there are no digital cameras which can use them as standard.

With the correct adapter you can mount most of them to Olympus Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds for certain but some CY lenses may have rear elements which project backwards too far into the camera body. You'll also find that there will be no automatic stop down and no communication of aperture, zoom or focus settings to whichever digital body you fit them to.

Many CY lenses are excellent Carl Zeiss T* units but like almost all old 35mm lenses the optical designs were designed by engineers using slide rules and calculators. Except for the occasional "accidentally good" lens you shouldn't expect the optical performance to match contemporary designs which have the benefit of computer aided design and the latest advances in optical technology. This is especially true at apertures wider than around f8.

You may find adapters from CY to anything else to be hard to obtain/expensive simply due to lack of demand: even at their peak, Contax and Yashica SLR cameras were infrequently encountered and had very low sales volumes.

Although this may all sound negative, my advice is to check ebay for an adapter; many good Chinese sellers offer excellent and cheap adapters but research their feedback. Your lenses should be much better than the average 35mm SLR lenses and if you can accept a few compromises are still capable of producing very good photographs under the right conditions. Alternatively find a good used body like a Contax 139 or Yashica FX-D and scan the 35mm negatives afterwards for best results.

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.

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si


Hello
The Minolta AF lens will fit and work on most of the Minolta AF bodies (it will depend on exactly what lens it is as to the compatibility), you will also find that it will fit and work with the new range of Sony
digital SLR camera bodies.

The Quantaray lenses are a little bit more difficult as Quantaray make lenses for several different types of camera body, it should mention on the lens what make the lens mount is for. If you post further information about the lenses it might help.
