    Minolta MC/MD Lens Service Manuals

    Does anyone know where I can pick up some MC/MD mount service and parts manuals? Just curious. Thank you.
    Thank you.

    I have a service manual for the SRT-101 that includes the MC 58/1.4 lens.

    Guess I should've added, "and I'd be happy to send you a copy."

    Maybe this is a good place to ask this question...

    I have a RokkorX 135 MC that goes onto my somewhat latemodel x370s. When properly attached the lens has a little wiggle or play to it. So far as I can tell I still have a light tight seal and it does not effect my photos, but I am a little worried about it.

    I'm fairly certain that its not the camera. A 50mm MD lens mounts perfectly and is nice and tight.

    Is there something I can do to correct this? Is this because I'm mounting an MC lens to an MD camera? Or, is there a common mounting ailment for the MCs that I need to know about???

    Same here. I use mine on SRTs. Never thought much about it... I just chalk it up to nearly forty years of use.

    As with you, I haven't seen any evidence of a light leak, so I figger, "If it ain't broke... "

    Sounds like years of good use to me. I have a couple that do that as well, no probs, just a little loose is all.
    Thank you.

    Hi Joey,
    You can take a look at whatever number of screws are in the back of the lens.
    Sometimes the mount on the lens loosens up. A small crosspoint screwdriver should do the trick. Of course if it's old enough it may have slotted screws.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
