I have a Minolta 5d and am trying to use a lens with a T mount. It works on other Maxxum cameras but the 5D does not see it. Any ideas??

Is there an adapter.



Thanks,

Bob V

Go into the menu, the purple one with the * icon page 2and turn off shutter lock with no lens. The T mount has no electronics, so the 5D doesn't think there is a lens attached. If you will be using the T mount a lot, you can leave the setting to off, but I always reset mine to on.
