    Cameras with MD/MC Mount

    Hi,

    besides the Minolta (SRT/and others) series, what other cameras with MC/MD mounts are there?
    I am looking for other bodies to reuse my lenses.

    Thanks!

    There are adapters to use with lots of SLRs. I use mine on my canon with an EOS adapter.

    Seagull from China made some 35mm SLRs with Minolta mounts. The most famous was the Seagull DF-1, which I have. The lens it came with was excellent, but the body is built really poorly.

    Here are the Minolta cameras (and other useful information) for the SR mount:
    http://www.rokkorfiles.com/Cameras.html

    Basically that's all. There were one or two chinese cameras with this mount and the Braun SR2000 but if you want a certain quality you are stuck with Minolta.
    Minolta lenses can be adapted to other cameras but since the lens register is rather small you loose infinity focus with most SLRs.

    And since you are in Germany try http://www.mi-fo.de/forum/. Lots of good info there.
    Regards,
    Andreas

    What's wrong with the X-series MD bodies? They're some of the best 35mm cameras ever made and cheap as dirt nowadays.

    Not too sure where that info came from but the Minolta manual SR mount lenses can actually be adapted to a number of digitals. All of the ones I am aware of focus to infinity just fine when the correct adaptor is used.

    Minolta x-700, if you can find one that hasn't been used much. Awesome little workhorse with full automation, but also easy to use manually. Only complaint is the aperture indexing mechanism on mine failed, but only after much abuse (see; dropping it hard enough to knock the focusing screen out).
    In other worlds he has
