FotodioX MD-SNYE-PRO Overview

The Adapter for Minolta MD/MC/SR Rokkor Mount Lens to Sony NEX Mount Camera from FotodioX allows a Minolta MD/MC/SR Rokkor Mount lens to attach to a Sony NEX camera body. Adapting a larger format lens to a smaller format sensor provides optical as well as practical advantages. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the center or "sweet spot" of the larger lens' image circle, thus providing edge-to-edge sharpness.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or other electronic functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. Manual or aperture priority mode must be used when this adapter is attached. Its all-metal design and polished surface provide smooth mounting and long lasting performance.

The leaf spring design in the adapter holds the lens tight to the camera body ensuring there is no play between the camera and the lens.
The adapter also has a removeable tripod mount to help bear the weight of heavier lenses.

Solid adapter, beware black powder inside!

Good adapter, solid, no issues with the fit. It did have a surprising amount of black powder on the inside, so I had to thoroughly clean it before use to make sure none of this got into the camera.

Fits well. No complaints.

I dont have anything to compare it with but am happy with it for the price. Fits well and functions as designed.

Adapter on a Sony A7RII

Excellent product, well engineered resulting in a perfect fit to the camera (Sony A7R2) and lens. Tried my old Minolta lenses; MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2, MC Tele Rokkor 135mm f2.8, MD Rokkor 28mm f2.8 and finally a Tele Rokkor TD 300mm f4.5. All worked without a hitch, set shutter speed and aperture manually and the button to take a picture. The only lens that I have not tried yet is a Auto Rokkor PF 58mm f1.4 from my old SR7 camera, the pre-view lever interferes with the adapter's tripod mount. I think this tripod mount can be easily removed using a Allen wrench. Full marks for this adapter

Does the job

I'm using this to adapt some old Minolta MD and MC lenses to my a7rii. Overall, the quality feels acceptable and both ends fit securely without any light leakage. I'm disappointed that this did not come with end caps or a storage case/bag - it would be great to protect the ends during transport. I have not used the tripod collar as it seems quite flimsy and I don't trust it. You get what you pay for with this adapter.

Works perfectly

The adapter works perfectly. I was able to use my decades old Minolta lenses with my new Sony A-7. Of course the electronic auto focus doesn't work when the adapter is on, but you can use manual focus and be just fine. It was quite the unexpected windfall to realize I could use my old lenses. My only issue is that the adpater does not come with caps for the optics for storage. If you are buying this piece, see about separate caps to protect it when not in use.

Best fit for the price!!!

This adapter has outstanding build quality. My older minolta glass locks in tighter on this adapter than with my more expensive metabones adapter and is half the cost of a novoflex adapter. One thing to be aware of is that there is loose powder coating dust inside the adapter. Anyone buying this adapter should vacuum and thoroughly clean the interior surfaces BEFORE attaching it to your camera. Failure to do this will make a big mess on your senor. Once it's cleaned this is a top notch adapter for running old rokkor glass on the amazing Sony a7s ii body.

question

Can I use Minolta sr mount lenses with this?
Asked by: Edian i.
I use the adapter with my lenses that I had for my Minolta SRT 101. The lens I use mainly is a Kiron 72mm zoom. The auto focus does not work but I have never used an auto focus camera so that does not bother me.

question

Can I focus to infinity with this adapter with Sony A7?
Asked by: Amaury
I have had no problems with Minolta lenses not focussing to infinity using this adapter, but each lens is slightly different so just check with each lens before shooting.
