It would help if you actually gave details of the lens!

All the old Minolta AF and MF lenses will fit the Sony A100, but only the AF are auto-focus compatible.

Since the Maxxum 7000 was an AF camera, I would image that that is an AF lens pictured on the front.

I bought the 500mm f/8 lens for my Sony a100 camera. When I put it on my camera it says no lens attached how do I fix this problem?


You didn't specify which 500mm f/8 lens, so I'm assuming it's one of those without the electronics to communicate with the camera. If that is so, then the camera will report that there is no lens attached. You have to switch the camera to the Manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

Will the Quantaray 49mm to 55mm step up ring work on a Sony a100 DSLR camera


The step-up ring will on any lens with a 49mm filter thread, regardless of the manufacturer. The easiest way to find out whether it works with any given lens is to see whether the ring fits onto the front of the lens (you could also read the filter size written on the lens itself).
If it doesn't fit, purchase the appropriate step-up ring. That will be much cheaper than buying a whole new set of filters.
If the new lens(es) have a 55mm filter thread then you don't need the step-up ring at all. The filters will mount directly onto the lens.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 lens got wet and now it does not focus. Will buying new lens solve the problem?


If the lens was the only area to get wet then yes replacing it should resolve the issue.

Sony a100 match ups


Yes, when Sony took over Konica Minolta they inherited the Maxxum lens mount (Minolta's AF lens mount system). the only Minolta lenses which don't work are the earlier manual focus type.

Sony have finally launched three new models which are the first to be clearly Sony designed, but they have still retained the Maxxum lens mounting.

A700 flashing "lens" message


Is the lens switched to manual as well as the mode dial. If the compatable lens is a minolta requiring an M42 adapter make sure that the protruding arm/rod is operating the shutter when depressed and that the adapter when fitted operates the lens when turned from auto to manual. Good luck.

Sony a100 keeps locking up and giving an error cod = 0x57


Try turning the camera off, take the battery out, reinsert it. If that doesn't work, the manual says to contact your local Sony dealer. You might also want to try taking the lens off, making sure nothing is hindering its communication to the camera body. Try using another lens if you have one.

Lens ? Are the lens' from my old reliable sony f828 compatible with the sony alpha 300 I am thinking of ordering? Is there a fix if not?


You can try going to the camera store, and finding an adapter ring for it I've got an alpha 100 and can use konica/maxxuum lenses, and with an adapter I can also use Pentax screw mount.I wouldn't have bought the sony a100 unless it would take my other lenses too. Take the old lens and the a300 in to try out for a good fit.

Minolta digital camera,s


Simple answer...Take your best working lens to a camera store,and ask to test a sony a100 digital camera. ALL Minolta Maxuum auto focus lenses work with the a100. This includes Konica/minolta type also. If you don't have an auto focus lens, it still might work-but you would loose some features, by swaping camera bodies. In the least it would cost you nothing to find out what camera they would work on, and save you enough money to partly pay for the new camera body you want anyway. Shoot a few stills with your lens on the different bodies-after all your not waisting film-until you find one that is good for you. The camera shop might even have an adapter ring for your lens to the camera body of your choice.

Sony A100 compatible lenses


Virtually all the old Minolta lenses are compatible with the new Sony SLRs.

For the two you mention, you will need to check whether the lenses are the AF or MF versions.

Both will fit, but AF is the auto-focus one, and MF is (obviously!) manual-focus.
