Hi.

I think you need an Alpha (Minolta D have A mount) to Pentax K mount, but first ensure that the lens is effectively a K mount, as the one in the Cosina f/4.2-6.5 listed in title. Here a link to the adapter described.

Regards.

Ginko.

    Hi Roy.

    I see, you have broken the lens mount itself. I thought you need an adapter. In that case you cannot buy the part online, you need the lens original replacement spare from Cosina (if available).

    Cosina does not provide direct customer support. The best way to source the part is contacting the nearest authorized distributor. Here a list: COSINA.

    I would contact the distributors in Germany and Switzerland. Try also the UK and Denmark, as they are nearer, the first two should hold a bigger stock.

    Hi Roy. If they do not have the spare, try Germany or Switzerland. Those have a bigger stock.

    All the best.

two reasons for this are possible:
1) you changed the exposure compensation by mistake to minus something... - see below - change it again to +- zero:

I have been given a Cosina 1: 3.5-5.6, MC MACRO, 58mm lens size, 28-80mm AF lenses. Don't really want it, what should I do? a) bin it b) give it to a charity shop c) find out which camera it is for...


If it's a Cosina, then it's a Pentax KA mount lens. They're always in demand but prices will be low, even if you're certain that the lens is working. If you cannot confirm the lens works, then it's no good to a charity shop (they'd know nothing about the lens anyway unless they specialise in cameras like one in Redhill, Surrey). Throwing it away just adds to landfill so why not join your local FreeCycle/Freegle group and offer it there, clearly stating that the lens is untested? After making an offer, it opens the door to asking for things which you may sometimes want so could be a good way to start.

Montgomery ward lenses wont fit on my XG-1 minolta camera,


Montgomery Ward branded lenses were rebadged Cosina lenses supplied by Sears. As such they are virtually unknown outside of North America (and almost forgotten in their home market).

Cosina were a well known budget lens manufacturer and supplied their products with mountings for most major brands including Minolta.

Your lens can certainly fit your camera with a suitable adapter but how functional and useful it is depends upon what mount the lens already has. Due to different body depths used by competing SLR brands it will either work reasonably well or will be unable to achieve infinity focus. Canon SLR bodies were the shallowest and could accept adapters without difficulty for all other 35mm SLR brands but conversely this meant that Canon lenses with adapters could not achieve infinity on other makes. Olympus were in completely the opposite situation as they had the deepest bodies. Minolta were somewhere between the two extremes.

There were plenty of lenses for all of the major brands and an excellent supply of third party suppliers such as Cosina, as a result there was rarely any need to fit brand A to brand B and adapters were rarely produced and were generally expensive.

Minolta were one of the first manufacturers to change their mounting to an autofocus system in the 1980's so any adapters which were available have long ceased to be available and would even be difficult to find at used camera fairs.

You would be far better to look at the mounting ring of your Monty to see if there is an indication of which bayonet mount it has: K=Pentax, N/Ni=Nikon, Om=Olympus, C/Ca=Canon, CY= Contax/Yashica, MD=Minolta. There are plenty of others but these are the most common bayonet mounts, if you cannot identify the mount try taking the lens to an older hand at a traditional camera shop to ask if they recognise it. Using this information you can then sell your lens and use the funds to buy one which fits properly.

Montgomery Ward are virtually unknown to most 35mm SLR users so it's near impossible to sell and even then will be near worthless, but if you mention that it's a rebadged Cosina you increase the chances of a sale as folks will know what they're buying. Cosinas do not fetch much but at least they will attract buyers. The exception to all this is if the Monty has an X mount: this would mean it's a Fujica mount and Fujica owners were always starved of lens options. As a result X mount lenses will often fetch prices well in excess of double what would usually be achieved, particularly if there are competing buyers and if it's a particularly desirable focal length lens.

Although the Monty won't fetch much, you can also expect to pay peanuts for a replacement unless it's a genuine Minolta model and in any case will very likely have spent less than you would were you to actually find the correct adapter on sale.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

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

Hey arnelsartwor,
To set both exposure and flash bracketing you need to press the drive mode button, and then use the up/down arrows to select bracketing and then use the right/left arrows to highlight the drive mode option and then press the center button to select the desired drive mode. These instructions are on page 50 of your user manual. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

The P-channel MOSFET switching the CF power is dead. It is on the little board directly above the battery compartment. SOT23 package, the marking is 338 or something like that. Replace it and it will work.
