  • Ah yes. I see that now on the AF 70-210 that I have. Thank you!
  • I ordered this one to arrive Apr 11 - 26. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B004G3D61W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 A quick question. Will I be able to focus Minolta AF lenses with my ...
  • Un here in Canada it is sometimes difficult to find a Canadian supplier for items that are plastered all over ebay dot com. So far if it's available in canada it's crazy expensive or in most case, ...
  • Thanks again for your vast knowledge, Professor, I do plan on purchasing The LA-EA4 adapter when affordable. Up here it'll sell for about 500$ plus 13% gst. Rainbow only ship to USA. Can you ...
  • I'm about to pull the trigger on this Minolta AF to NEX-7 adapter: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mount-Adapter-For-Sony-Alpha-Minolta-AF-to-NEX-E-NEX3-NEX5-NEX6-NEX7-A6300-A6000/32719595796.html? ...
  • Thank you ProfHankD for that extensive and very useful information, which I have saved to my Evernote on this subject. LA-EA4 is on my list after reading your write-up. I admit that I find Sony's ...
  • Thanks to both for those useful links. I will be back!
  • Hi Kelly, thanks for that useful info, which I've saved. Would you mind posting a link to an example of a lens that you mentioned above?
  • Hey!. It that adapter works with a Minolta MC Rokkor  - PE 200mm 4.5 lens I didn't realize that I had. I'm still grinding through stuff I purchased a couple of years ago from an estate sale.
  • Thank you for that, SQLGuy. The more that I have been reading, the worse off I seem to be. I was thinking that Minolta "A" and "MC/MD" were the same, mount-wise. It's the age thing kicking in, I ...
  • Camera is Sony NEX-7. The lens won't fit the adapter. Did I order the wrong adapter: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B003Y2YE62/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 All pics and info on ...
  • Replied in SR mount
    I came across this here http://briansmith.com/gear/sony-lens-adapters/,  so it looks like it's for screw-mount lenses. "Sony's LA-EA4 lens adapter adds full-time continuous Phase Detection AF using ...
  • Replied in SR mount
    If I'm correct, the Sony-brand LA-EA4 35mm adapter is the one to get because there is electrical connection from AF lenses to the Sony body which enable normal auto focus, aperture and speed ...
  • Replied in SR mount
    Thank you very much Mike for that easy for me to understand information. As you mentioned, an A7 "used" in my case, looks to be my target. In the meantime, I'll order a Minolta MD mount to NEX ...
  • Replied in SR mount
    Thank you both for that useful info. I have a Sony NEX7, but I want to get back into full frame, since I do have some Minolta lenses. Can you suggest Used Sony bodies that would be suitable that I ...
  • I came across an old post in this thread regarding Minolta legacy glass used on Sony A mount cameras, that I can't find even with search. Following is part of the text: "No, Maxxum was only in America
