Minolta MD W Rokkor 20mm f2.8 lens

Discussion in 'Minolta' started by Mark A Framness, Jan 23, 2004.

  1. Greetings,

    Hey can anyone tell me about the "Minolta MD W Rokkor 20mm f2.8 lens"? From
    what I can see it is a manual lens, no autofocus or autoexposure, correct?
    Can it fit on a Maxxum 7000i body?

    I had a 20mm F2.8 lens (Promura) and it is fallin apart on me and a wide
    angle would make a freelance photo shoot a lot easier!

    Thank You

    This is a very good lens for the older manual focus cameras.

    I have heard of an adapter to fit manual focus lens on the Maxxum line
    but have never seen one..

  3. No to the last, it is purely for the manual focus cameras. You need an AF
    Minolta lens; Minolta, like Canon, switched lens mount when they introduced
    AF cameras.

  4. I have an adaptor for my Promura 20mm lens, but as I said that hunk is
    falling into pieces. Oh well it served me well when it served.

    Thanks

    you can buy an adapter, they usually run between $50-$75 and due to
    the difference between the manual and autofocus film registers, it
    also acts as a 1.2x or 1.4x to the focal length.
