Konica-Minolta Cameras Lens

Discussion in 'Minolta' started by George Nuetzel, Jan 2, 2006.

  1. I was wondering what lens mounting configuration is used on their
    digital interchangeable lens cameras. I have a Konica Autoreflex T from
    the 1970's and would like to know if my lens would fit these cameras.

    No.

    Unless there is an adapter to use Konica manual focus lenses on a
    Minolta Dynax camera, you are out of luck.

    No. You need, at the very least, an adapter, and I doubt they have one for
    those lenses.
    Konica-Minolta is a new-ish concept anyway and the mount configuration is
    from the original AF lens series when Minolta had nothing to do with Konica.
    I think the mount is called an "A" mount.

  4. I had the same question when I switched from Konica to the KM 5d.
    Unfortunately, the answer is no. Not only that but the Minolta body is
    considerably thicker than Konica's, which means Konica lenses wouldn't
    focus at infinity, even with an adapter.

    I guess the KM merger was like the DiamlerChrysler 'marriage of
    equals'.

  5. Thanks, Philip and Jasen for responding. I thought that would be the
    answer. My Autoreflex T is still a great camera. Later, I bought
    another
    Konica SLR (I believe it was an FT-1) so my lens would fit. It was a
    piece
    of junk and shortly after this purchase, Konica stopped making SLR's.
