Hi, I bought a old manual Minolta SLR camera (X-700). I also bought a Rokkor MC PF Prime 58mm lens. Now,I want to get an extension tube. Do I need to look for a tube for a manual camera? Is there a difference in those tubes?

Hi. Yes, you need to get a tube for manual camera. Minolta change the mounting on DSLR camera. You may try www.ebay.com to look for older stuff that you can't find on your local shops.

Ah, the X700, I used one for years until it just got to the point where it was worn out. As you are aware these cameras are mostly in the 25 year old range and if they have not had proper tune ups and maintenance done it is likely that it has issues, and likely had them when it was sold to you. Your best bet would be to take it to a reputable camera repair shop and have them give you an estimate.

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.

Check you manual, but it should be no problem- Sony bought Konica Minolta to have the Minolta lens mount (and engineers). Your old lens doesn't have all the internal electronics (and connections) of the new lenses, but every old minolta AF lens i've tried works fine with alpha

Have multiple Minolta X-700 bodies, the 400mm Minolta MD lens, does lock onto one body but not some of the other camera bodies. Any idea why?


If your other lenses lock on to all of the bodies, then it is quite likely that the notch on the mount edge of the 400mm is worn. The notch is located about 90 degrees clockwise from the red marker dot on the lens barrel. I doubt if there are new replacement mounts for that lens. You may be able to square up the edges of the notch with a small file.

Can't change f-stop to higher numbers


That tiny silver post on the front of the body moves the pointers inside the body so you can see in the viewfinder where the aperture is set. It should move far enough that it lets you set 1.7 to 22. Check it to be sure the internal display matches the lens setting.
If it matches, and won't let you go all the way over, check the track for obstructions. Remove the lens and check the silver tab. It should go past the A in MINOLTA. Does the tab move all the way with another lens?
It sounds like something internal is blocking the movement of the ring or its linkage on the SRT.
I suggest a trip to the repair shop for the SRT. Garry Airapetov in Niles, IL repairs them at a very good price. He will fix it, clean, Lube, adjust it, and return it for around fifty dollars.
Look up Garry;s camera repair online to check prices and download the form you send with it.
He did a really good job with my SRT 101.

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.

Using sony alpha 100 with cosina 28-300


That lens was made for minolta cameras. and it would need to be whats called. "Re-chiped"
if you get a hold of the company that made it then they usually do it for free. If they still have parts.
So what happens is. even though it is an auto focus lens. It wasnt set up to work with sony.So you jsut need the lens and camera to speek the same language in theory.


If you took it to a camera store they should beable to help you get in contact with the company.


Hop that helps,
Caleb
