Playing around with my Minolta MD Legacy glass the last couple of days and I am noticing part of the image is blacked out. It happened with my 500mm vivitar tele and a 100-300mm Minolta MD zoom lens.

I had the camera set with the e-front curtain shutter on. I changed this to off and it exposes the images like I expect.

blacked out part of the image.

e-curtain turned off.

is there something I am missing?

At 1/6000s EFC might be too slow. Try it at slower speed and see if it happen. Above 1/500s, there is no reason to use EFC anyway. You might experience similar problems with HiSpeed flash photography.
