Tokina 35-300mm lens compatability?
Dec 17, 2008

Hello all in Sony / Minolta land.

I'm confused, I have read that pretty much all AF Minolta lenses will work with the Sony bodies - but this one doesn't... http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130271431849

The camera doesn't even recognise the aperture etc and wom't take pictures. The lens has 5 electrical contacts while the body has 8 - I guess this is why....

Or is the lens simply faulty?

Any assistance as to which cameras the lens should work with would be appreciated.
