Question about Vivitar Cameras

1 Answer

Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

    Thanks very much....... all sites have given lots of info, but I think the answer to my question is a big fat zero, as my lenses are prior to the auto focus era.



    Thanks for your help though

There are adapters available to fit the old Minolta manual-focus lenses on Sony alpha-series dSLRs as well as Sony NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lenses obviously will not autofocus and, depending on the lens and camera body, you may lose some or all exposure metering capability.

Do Minolta lenses fit on Sony digital slrs?


Yes, but only if they're Minolta autofocus lenses. When Sony bought Konica Minolta, they adopted the same lens mount for their SLR's.

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.

Vivitar 75-300mm lens


The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.

KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.

Minolta 5000i 35m


The i-series Maxxums were the 2nd generation of Minolta auto focus SLRs. They had cards for various shooting modes beyond what you could set on the camera. It is not a slot for memory cards like the newer digital cameras. The slot was also the access point for a repair tool to adjust the cameras internal settings of speed and exposure,

The repair tool used to do this was: An original GameBoy...

You can use any lens made for Minolta AF. Latest models of the lenses will not work properly since they have more features than your 5000i is capable of, i.e. power assisted zoom..
