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.

I need to replace the lens hood for my Sony dsc f828 . What size should I be looking for ? 55 mm ? Thanks


The lens thred is 58mm on F828, however a 58mm lens hood does not work; I have both a reverseable and a regular 58mm flower hood that extends 1/2" to the front of the lens causing dark corners on 28mm focal length. In addition, the lens itseft has built in receiver for hood as labled in the manual, I am thinking to get a 62mm or 60mm reversable hood and match up with the receiver on the lens

My DSC f828 sony camera's lens is loose. Sony says it is not worth repairing. Surely there must be a way to fix this ? thanks


I'm not sure what you mean by "loose". Does it still take good pictures? If not, then Sony is correct...the camera was introduced in 2003 and the cost of repair would far exceed the camera's worth.

After having the f828 in my luggage the lens and the body are not tight together anymore. when i hold the lens with my left hand the body joggles left an right? can i unscrew the camera and tighten a screw...


I fixed that problem by tightening up screws but they were inside the lens turret swivel mechanism. This required some fairly major surgery to get to them and it was a bit intimidating. I carefully noted all the steps, took plenty of photos on the way using the Nikon macro, and consulted the service manual. The outcome was a fully restored and serviceable F828 which, despite its age is going on holiday with me again soon to the South Pacific. All the detail for the surgery is on http://howtheheckdididothat.blogspot.com/ I hope that helps you and the many others I know have had the same problem. Good luck - I hope you have it fixed after all this time. The F828 is still hard to beat in many respects.

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.

Unfortunately, there are electrical differences between early and later Sigma lenses. Although the bayonet connection is the same, and the lens can fit, it will not necessarily connect electrically with the connections on the camera. Sigma can modify the lens for you, but this can be quite costly, and you may be cheaper to look for an alternative lens.

Hi, i have provided some disassembly and reassembly detail on my blogsite to deal with a loose lens problem. The site has a link to the service manuals which might help, otherwise my detail might be all you need. See: http://howtheheckdididothat.blogspot.com/2010_10_01_archive.html There are lots of pictures and step by step instructions. Hopefully this will fix your problem.

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:
