Minolta Lenses

Hi there! Im brand new here - have been lurking for a few weeks.
Can anyone tell me if there is some way I can use Minolta Roccor of 1970s vintage on my Pentax K20?

Hey John from Pietersburg (mixed up your name with the town :-) ,
welcome to the forum and I hope you have a splendid time anytime you come around here.

About using lenses on other mounts, there is the problem of different lens <> focal plane distances in different lenses.

This means nothing else but that you will not get infinity easily with any lens<>camera combination.

In the case of Minolta Rokkor <> Pentax K-mount you can get lucky if you are a tinkerer. In fact the older Rokkkors are easier convertible to K-mount than the newer ones.

Scroll down to the post of user Xtriky here;
Manual Focus Forum / Minolta MD lenses on DSLR's...possible?

Looking forward to see your Rokkor shots from the worldcup next year !

Georg (Germany will win it all :-)

As a shop project, probably so, without enough ingenuity and probably some compromises in functionality and IQ. As something ordinary photography would ever do, no.
