Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

I believe it focused to infinity but I need to do some more test shots using "live view" enlarged x10 to check it out. I haven't yet tried my 500mm mirror but I need to get out with a tripod to test...

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi Pete

Just tweaked it a little in PS Elements. Is this allowed? Or is it a *nono ?

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Forgot to mention, Pete, I was about 5-6 feet away from the window which, I presume, would have brought some of the smudges and haze on the glass etc., into focus.

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi Mike

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi Mike

It's taken me little time to reply to you, but I now have a Minolta to 4/3 adapter:). I have fitted it to a 50mm 1.4 lens and taken a few shots out of the window and it seems fine. I'll...

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi MAS

I am very interested in seeing your shots. What lens or lenses have you used with it? By "spun" do you mean that it has spun on the lens or on the camera?

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi Mike
Good of you to post your results for me. Your gee-gee shots are great did you use a tripod? So I take it that the allen key is not to adjust the adapter so that lens fitting part moves...

Re: Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Mike

You're getting me excited!! Thought no-one had attempted or was interested in marrying Minolta with Olympus 4/3rds.

I, too, have a mirror lens that I would like to experiment with....

Minolta lenses on E System cameras???

Hi

Has anyone experience of using Minolta lenses on E system cameras? I understand that the adapters for these need to be very thin in order for the lens to focus to infinity which worries me a...
