Minolta - MD/SR mount on Pentax???

Hi everybody.

I was fortunate enough to get a bunch of old Minolta MD/SR mount lenses from another photographer who could not use them.

I'd like to know if there is any way that I can convert these to work on a Pentax K10d?

If not then I'll most probably put it up for sale.

If anyone has any advice, it would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

I seem to remember someone using the instructions on this site How to Convert Your Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2 Lens to Canon EOS Mount but with a cheap m42 to K-mount adaptor instead of the canon mount to convert their lens. I don't know what lenses you have but something similar might work for you.

The K mount register distance is almost 2mm longer than the MD mount. Whether or not you can adapt MD lenses to a K mount camera is probably moot, since you will lose infinity focus, and with shorter lenses, even long focus will be lost.

It is possible but you have to modify the lens. For more detail please see here
