I have a sony a 230 camera the halfway focus won't work anymore, any fixes?


Check that the camera or lens AF/MF switch hasn't moved to MF.
This will turn off the auto focus on the camera.
You can see them both in this photo.

Autofocus canon 600d


There is a seperate sensor for the autofocus. IT is either bad or dirty. You may not be able to clean it either.

I use a 28 -200mm Sigma Aspherical on my Sony Alpha cameras. it's a decent workhorse but has begun to misbehave and I suspect the autofocus motor is failing. When I attach the lens to the camera and turn...


Unless you're a qualified lens specialist with dust-free laboratory conditions, correct tools, alignment equipment etc, not advisable.
Rather take it in to a pro for assessment and quote.
If you're lucky, they may be able to diagnose the fault and give you a rough quote.
Sounds like internal gearing is worn / loose.
Has lens ever been dropped?

Unable to actually see the photo in progress in the lcd!


I suppose you are referring to EOS XSi.
Hit the menu button
Go to the fifth menu, and choose the "Live View function settings"
On "Live Viwe shoot." select "Enable" option"
Go back to shooting modes.
The option works only with non automatic modes.
Hit the "SET" button each time you want to see the current picture in the screen, instead through the viewfinder.
Set to MF on the lens switch "AF-MF"

Please let me now if it works.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!
Glen

Sony A100 compatibility


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.

Check out this site for more details:

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!!
