I've recently come into possession of my dad's old film-camera equipment - two Minolta cameras (SRT 101 and 201), and a fine collection of lenses (28mm, 135mm, 80-200mm zoom, and 400mm.) I've also recently purchased a new QSI 683wsg CCD camera. I've been told that the Minolta lens mounting is a bayonet-style that is not used any more. Would anyone have any ideas as to where I might find an adapter for these lenses to use with the new camera? Everything I see seems to be for Nikon and Canon.
These lenses certainly would broaden my astroimaging portfolio. They are pristine, and I'd hate to see them unused. The equipment is on the order of 40+ years old, if that helps in the search.
Many thanks for any responses.
