    Dear All,

    I just purchased 3 lenses on Ebay and all the sellers claimed that they are Minolta MD Mount. I also got an Adaptor from China which has no brand and is supposedly for MD-NEX mount. The three lenses appears to have different mounts, please see attached picture, and the adaptor works with one of the lenses.

    Are these 3 lenses all minolta MD mount? if they are then how come only one lens fits the adaptor? Is the adaptor flawed or too small to fit all the MD mount variant lenses?

    If they are not MD mount lenses, then please someone tell me what are they? I have to contact the seller if they are mis-advertising it. It's already almost 14 days since purchase but I just got my adaptor today to try them out........PLEASE HELP!

    Only the Zeznar Lens fits into the adapter but the other two doesn't. The other two seems like the "blades" are too big to fit into the three blade holes.

    LensS1. lens2. lensQ1. LENSQ. LensZ1. lensZ2. adaptor.

    Thanks xxx you are right. After some effort I was able to put the quantary lens in as well.

    The sigma is definitely not md minolta. Is that a konica ar? Is that the adaptor that I should buy? I think it days bayonet ii mount is that the same as konica ar mount?


    Thanks.
