How to mount Minolta AF 28-80/3.5-5.6 on pentax

\015 Is it possible to mount Minolta AF 28-80/3.5-5.6 on pentax dslr. I want to use my old film lens on DSLR.\015

Answers :

Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount Minolta lenses on a Pentax K mount camera and retain either auto-focus, metering, or the ability to focus at infinity.\015\012
\015\012The reason for the loss of the ability to focus at infinity is because the distance from the mount to where the image forms on a Minolat lens is 43mm, whereas on a Pentax it is 46mm, so the Minolta lens glass would need to be 2mm into the body of the Pentax camera in order for the image to form on the sensor (i.e. have a clear image that is in focus).\015\012
\015\012The only solution to this is to purchase an adapter with an optical element such as this:\015\012http://photo-adapter-llc.amazonwebstore.com/Zykkor-Minolta-MD-Lens-to-Pentax/M/B004PB8142.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=CSE&utm_source=froogle\015\012This will allow you to focus at infinity, however you will have to use stop down metering and manual focus, as the electrical contacts will not connect. Also, you can expect a slight loss of image quality when using an adapter.\015\012
\015\012I personally have a few Minolta lenses that I have wanted to use on my Pentax, so I understand your pain. It is a shame they don't work better.\015\012

Lens adaptor I purchased a Phoenix 1300mm lens for my minolta cameras, maxxum 7d digital and analogue. The lens adaptor that was supplied with the lens has no cantacts and when attached to the body and the shutter release pressed, the camera indicates that there is no lens attached. The company that I purchased the lens from in Queensland Australia, and Phoenix themselves no longer seem to be in business so Ihave no results from them. The Phoenix lens is a screw mount looks like early Pentax but

The good news is that it is possible to get the camera to operate with the lens & adapter :-)The bad news is that you'll only be able to use it in manual mode :-(To get the camera(s) to actually fire, you will need to chan ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera
