Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.

This Fotodiox adapter has a built-in 1.4x Multi-Coated Focus Correction lens to adjust for infinity focus. The glass element can be removed for macro photography. This adapter allows Minolta MD, MC Rokkor Lenses to fit on a Sony Alpha (also Minolta AF, A-type, Maxxum or Dynax) camera body. Adapter caps are included to protect the focusing element when not in use.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

Compatible Cameras (including, but not limited to): Sony Alpha A-Mount Cameras DSLR a3500, A350, A900, A230, A330, A380, A550, A500, A850, A450, A290, A390, A560, A580, A33, A55, A35, A65, A77, A57, A37, A99, A58, a3000, A77II, Minolta Maxxum 5D, 7D, 7, 9xi, 7xi, 5xi

This mount adapter is intended to re-use MD-MC Rokkor lenses on the Sony Alpha body. You should know in advance that it is just a piece of hardware with no electronic chip, just for you to be able to attach the MD, MC lenses to the new Sony Apha body without being recognized by the body, it meant that you will use those lenses in fully manual mode ( aperture, focus ). I knew it,accepted it and bought it. At the rear end of this mount, it has 02 piece of glass ( not plastic ), one convex and one concave placed againts each other. I tried a few shots and the result cannot be acceptable. In the very center of the image, the subject is there but very unsharp, all the corners are blurred. My old lenses are 28mm2.8, 50mm1.4, 135mm2.8, so, nobody can blame on the optical quality of these lenses. By removing the 02 pieces of glass, the whole set is intended to be transformed as a macro lens but again, the result is still unacceptable. The quality of the 02 pieces of glass is no better than any cheap magnifier glass ...
Fotodiox may have a good intention to help old Rokkor Minolta lenses could be re-used, but technically speaking, the result may ruin the Fotodiox name. I paid something to learn an experience.
Should I recommend it to a friend ? You got my answer.

The product works. But some setting has to be changed. It is important to go in the menu and changed the option about the release w/o shutter, wich allows you to release the shutter without focus. If not modified the lens will not work. Besides the technical details the quality of the pictures are acceptable if not good, but so far I haven't come close to the great level. Any buyer have to keep in mind that the lenses build decades ago will work on the camera but the compatibility is not really comparable to what you would expect from today's lenses. Despite an halo effect I can really get rid of, the camera is quite reponsive.

The Adapter I received, fitted my Minolta MD lenses very well however, the fit to my Sony A57 was loose and wobbly. My 20mm f2.8 and 28mm f2.8 lenses did not work well as focusing to infinity was an issue. But that is OK. I sent the flawed adapter back 3 weeks ago. I just hope the long wait will be worthwhile when I eventually receive my replacement Fotodiox adapter. The physical build, feel and visual inspection showed the adapter to look and feel well constructed. Apart from my one issue, loose fit, I could be very happy with this product provided it fits my equipment. I do hope the wait for my replacement is worthwhile.
