"Only the human eye focuses faster than the Maxxum," claims Minolta. Well, possibly. It certainly is fast. My own experience lends credence to Minolta's figures: 0.35 second for 24- and 28-mm lenses, 0.60 sec. for 50-mm lenses, ...

    Only sony alpha-EOS that I know of

    Great product. Fits perfect. I own a Canon T3 (not the T3i). It does not link up the electrically components of the lens if anyone is wondering, so the auto-focus will not work. A word of warning sometimes when you use alpha lens if the auto-focus is on then you will have to mount it on something that can turn it off in order to use manual. For people who are new to adapters, it will crop your lens and magnify, on avg most adapters magnify by .4X so for ex. if you have a 50mm it will be equal to about a 70mm.

    Looked promising but ultimately disappointing!

    After reading the good reviews on this product, I ordered with confidence. When I received the product, I was delighted that it fit my 7D body very snugly as did all my Maxxum A-mount lenses. This was encouraging. It also had a nice aperture ring that reminded me of the old days of using manual SLR's and their lenses. So far so good. The lenses even unscrewed from the adapter nicely and there was no play in the fitting.However, the problem arose when I started shooting with it. All the images shot with my A-mount lenses connected w/ this adapter were super soft, blurry, foggy, and any lights in the scene would bloom into a blobby mess. Forget about nice crisp bokehs and stars. Also images were murky and darker than what the meter is indicating. In short, the images I got using this adapter were a big disappointment and basically unusable. I did some research and found that many have had the same issue w/ Fotodiox Pro adapters, albeit for other mounts like MD for... 2/5 S.Chen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

I was sceptical at first, however after seeing the beautiful pictures that resulted was amazing. No fisheye effects, cloudiness or anything that is possible to result from usuing and adapter such as this. Works wonderfully. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 25, 2013

    Great for attaching my Minolta MD lenses to Sony a65

It works great - with one caveat. There are no instructions and I had a bit of a problem figuring out how all three pieces fit together.Here's what worked for me.First - attach the adapter to my Sony camera - Red Dot to Red Dot.Second - attach the Minolta lens to the adapter - you have to go slow and figure out how it fits together - Obviously you want the numbers on top, so take your time.I called the Adapter people and they said they are working on instructions for all their products, but they are not available yet. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 11, 2012

    Bring old friends back from the grave!

    Really, really picky about how it accepts the lens, but in the end, it works. It can be super hard to get the lens locked in, but it's worth it - all those yummy old Minolta lens colors on giant new sensors opens up incredible possibilities. Personally, I had a bag full of great old glass that I just couldn't part with for many reasons (mostly emotional), but hadn't shot through in decades. This one little gizmo brought all my old friends back from the dead.Twisting a late 50's era 28mm f2.8 VFC onto a modern body and utilizing live view and focus peaking is nothing short of a religious experience. and the results are nothing short of pure, unbridled euphoria. Modern lenses are very often like modern photographers; they're technically very good. They have great specs and superior performance characteristics, but lack that 'something' - the emotion, the character you find in old glass.

    This Lens is a Delight - Very, Very Sharp

    The Minolta 50mm f/2.8 Macro is optically identical to the current (see 'customer reviews') which costs $598.00. I got a 'Used, Very Good' copy of the earlier Minolta version for one-quarter of that price. I am delighted with it.This lens has autofocus: you point it at the subject, and the autofocus is spot-on. On my Sony A65 DSLR the autofocus is also very fast. At close distances, it's essential to hold the camera very still. As with any macro lens, depth-of-field is very shallow, due to basic laws of optics. Stopping down to f/8 or f/11 helps.The lens focusses over the full range from infinity (landscapes) to 1:1. It has a sophisticated optical design, with three 'floating' groups of lens elements to maintain sharpness over the wide range... 5/5 Reviewer (Brooklyn, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
