            Comments about FotodioX Adapter for Minolta MD, MC, SR Rokkor Lens to Canon EOS Camera:

            I have these old lenses for my 35mm camera that I used to love using but now that I have a DSLR I can't use them. Right? I was leary about an adapter but I figured it was worth the money to find out if I could make those old Minolta lenses usefull again. This thing works. I'm using them now with my Canon 70D. My old macro lens is sharp as a tack and my old wide angle works great. You have to do a little work to get the exposure right but I knew that going in. Once you play with the adapter on your old lenses you'll figure it out. Make sure you know the old style lens mount so that you get the right adapter. I have 4 old lenses and because of this adapter two of those are now an everyday part of my arsenal. It works. Old Minolta lenses are now being used on my 70D. How much did I save by not buying new glass? This adapter works.

                This product does what it says it will do connect a Minolta lens to a Canon EOS camera, However my lens wouldn't focus correctly with it, I am not sure you can buy any adapter that an old 35mm lens will work correct on a updated camera like what's on the market today, but you never know! I gave this a two star due to the very good workmanship. Buy at your own risk it may work and it may not work!

                  Build Quality is outstanding. Metal construction does not feel cheap at all. I bought this so I could try out some of the older MD lenses to try and save some money, and it works like a charm. This piece fits perfectly for my vintage Minolta MD 50mm 1.7 on my 60D. I now have a beautiful video lens for less than $ including the adapter. My next lens is going to be a Minolta 12mm for $!! I LOVE THIS ADAPTER!!!!

                      This adapter is precision made and works perfectly, both in its fit to the camera body and various lenses. Like many photographers with some years and miles on them, I have an extensive collection of equipment for my totally manual 35mm camera. After learning about this adapter, I went and bought a DSLR body and can use all my old lenses in either a totally manual (my favorite) or aperture priority settings. TTL meter works fine. No need to break the bank on new lenses. I recommend this item and would buy it again.

                      The construction on the adapter is top notch, the lenses work beautifully, it lets you re learn how to giro graph with new (old) lenses. Overall a great product
