    Will the MD lenses work on a Maxxum 5000i? I don't care much about auto
    focus, but my sister has a x370s with some lenses that I want to try out
    on my 5000i ...

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Short answer is "No". Minolta switched to a new mount with the introduction
    of the Maxxum auto-focus cameras in 1984. Minolta still sells some MC/MD
    lenses for their manual focus cameras.

    Adapters exist to use an MD lens with a Maxxum camera, but image quality is
    compromised and they aren't recommended.

    No they won't fit.
