Default GH1 and Minolta lenses

Today arrived my Minolta-m4/3 adapter for using my (very old :-) ) Minolta lenses with GH1. An extra ring allows to (stepless) vary aperture.

Also available for NEX cameras.







samples

That is to say Minolta AF lenses, as opposed to Minolta MC/MD lenses (Manual focus).

I have one of those adapters, and it's odd that it says just "AF" instead of "Minolta AF"!!!

Tokina 28-210/3.5-5.6
Sigma 28-85/3.5-5.6

from a time before digital cameras :-) ... a.d.C. ... ante digital Camera

My first digital camera (after Minolta 404si) was an Olympus Camedia 400, pictures 1024x768, 6 MB (!) built in memory, no memory card, price ~ $ 1.100 :-(

Yeah, isn't that amazing? I paid over $700 for an used Sony R1 P&S a few years back (and the camera was already 2-3 years old at that time). When it was released, the price tag was $999.

I have a Tokina 75-300 1:4.5-5.6 620288. How do I know is it for Minolta or else? I'm trying to figure out which adapter I need for this lens. Thanks!

I can tell that it's not a Pentax or Canon FD mount. I have both and they don't look anything like this. It could be Nikon as it's one of the simplest mounts I know of.
