Oh, hai, Jack. Speaking of adapters, I have looked on the main websites for an adapter to adapt a Minolta lens to a Nikon body, to no avail. Does anyone know of such an adapter, or a source where I can inquire? Thnx.

Minolta to Nikon is a tough one because the mount increases the focal length so it needs some glass in it to correct for this. I have a Rokkor MD28, 50, & 135 and a Kiron 80-210 f4! in MD mount I would like to try on my Nikons. Some day I'll get an adaptor for this.

It depends on what kind of mount the minolta has but you can find a ton on ebay minolta to nikon | eBay

According to my operator's manual, the mount is Minolta A, so alal those MD adaptors probably will not work. Thanks. I'll keep looking.
