Default Compatable???????

Hi, Newbie hear.
Complete novice at over 50 so be gentle please.
I have purchased a Fuji 3000 & it came with 2 (free?) lenses 1x52mm thread 2xtelephoto & 1x 52mm thread 0.45x wide angle.
I have also purchased a Minolta A1 (can't resist a bargain) but as coming from state side has not arrived yet. Looking at the review of the A1 I can only see one mention of lens diameter in the accessories diagram, Step Up Adapter 49mm - 62mm
So as you have probably guessed my question, will these lenses work on the Minolta if I can find & use a 49mm-52mm step up adapter or will I have to search out another bargain in lenses on Ebay?.

I would bet that they would work. But you can always hold out long enough to try it and sell it on ebay if they don't.

Your problem usually comes from stepping down, where the edges of the teleconverter would be blocking parts of the camera lens.
