A-200 compatability with Dynax 5xi lenses
« on: July 14, 2008, 05:34:53 PM »
Hello All,
 I have a Minolta Dynax 5xi (faulty it rewinds film after two or three exposures). Also the following lenses:-

Zoom xi 0.8m/2.6ft AF 20 - 80 N0.22113667 (came with camera)
Zoom xi 1.5m/4.9ft AF 80 - 200 No. 62103022
AF Zoom  1.5m/4.9ft AF 75 - 300 No.96106086 (bought to replace above-proved not necessary as above still works O.K.
As I recall the first two will Auto zoom the last one is manual only.

Are these lens compatible with the A-200 DSLR

Regards,

Wychwar

Hi Wychwar... Welcome to the forum :)

Although I'm not familiar with the 5D, with it being one of the last [?] MINOLTA cameras before SONY took over, the lenses you list should fit and work with the a200. I have an old Minolta 7000 [purchased 1985] as well as a Dynax 500i [purchased 1998/99] and all my old glass for the 7000 work fine on the a700.

You may want to take a look through the D5 section of the forum also for information etc :)

Welcome to the forum WYCHWAR :)

Yes, those lenses are compatible with the a200.

(Frank - they were from a 5xi, not a 5D by the way ;))
