This is supposed to be a tech data sheet of all Minolta/KonicaMinolta/Sony Alpha bodies. My goal is to list all bodies, including older versions.

Bodies are color-coded as follows:

Current body
Discontinued body
Announced body

Brands are highlighted as follows:

Minolta, Konica Minolta
Sony

Whenever there's a “?” or empty space in the table, I do not know the data. If you have that specific body, or when you have a model not listed yet, and you can provide the data, please contact me and I'll update the table as soon as possible.

Data for announced products should be considered preliminary. Exact data often isn't known until after the actual release. You should not rely on data for announced products to be correct.

The data displayed is for the indicated firmware version. Earlier firmware versions may have lower functionality or performance.

Great page, I only miss the older Minolta's like XG en XD camera's.

Hi Michael,
Thanks very much for keeping up this website of very useful info. I found it through a link on Dyxum, the Minolta Maxxum/Sony site.
This note is not really realted to stuff on this page, but this is where I found the email link, LOL.
I love the charts. I own 2 Minolta MF bodies and 5 film Maxxums. This is a great source of info when planning another purchase. Thanks for including the aftermarket lenses and flashes as well. I like the inclusion of the HTsi and HTsi Plus models. NO, they are not the same model as other sites say. I have the HTsi. and XTsi. Your pictures should be updated, as the HTsi has no silver on it. Qtsi & STsi are all silver, the STsi adding a dial to change settings. HTsi in Black only adds the leatherette panels to the front. The HTsi Plus and the XTsi are in silver with leatherette panels on front. All of these except the XTsi sport a plastic lens mount. XTsi gets metal mount.
I noticed a Maxxum 7 Limited on the list, but the details seem identical to the 7. How is it different?
BTW, around here we don't put an "o" in the word 'curtain'. Where are you from? LOL
Again, I really like the site. I hope you keep it online.
Since I also own Canon EOS film bodies, do you know if anyone has built a similar site for Canon stuff?
Feel free to edit this note before posting it, and if you know of an EOS based site, please email me.
Michael Hohner answers:
I've moved this, as I think it fits better here.

Each row in the camera table represents up to three cameras. There may be cosmetic differences between regional models.

The differences between the 7 and 7 Limited are listed in the comments column. You can also use the comparison function on the page to find differences automatically.

I don't know if something similar exists for Canon EOS.

Hi Michael,
i have some addition to your table (column Comments):
You already list "plastic lens mount" for Dynax 300si, Dynax 404si, Dynax 500si.

Further models do have a plastic lens mount: Dynax 303si, Maxxum HTsi, Dynax 505si, Dynax 4, Dynax 40.

For the Dynax 3L i have not found any valid information, but i am sure it has a plastic lens mount also.

Any other model listed here has a metal lens mount.

Thanks for your great work!
Michael Hohner answers:
Thanks for the update. The mount material is now a separate column in the above table.
#6: Comment posted by Joe Chinea on April 19th, 2010 - 11:16:09 PM:
Great ref web page... the problem is that Sony will not sell a body of a camera. I have been attempting to purchase an A230 or A330 to use with system of Minolta AF lenes. I have had no luck with retailers and Sony Style and Parts/Acc department both have not answers.

The question then is, why have interchangable parts when its impossible to complete the item without duplicating lenes and increasing the intial cost of the item?
Michael Hohner answers:
This depends on the market. For example, in Germany and Britain Sony is selling the A230 and A330 also body only. In the U.S. Sony is selling only camera kits of the A230 and A330 with at least one lens (the 18-55).

Hervorragende Seite - Hut ab!
Seit langer Zeit greife ich immer wieder auf diese Seite zurück, weil ich weiß, dass ich hier umfangreiche und verlässliche Informationen finde, die ich als Minolta-Nutzer gut gebrauchen kann.
Als aktiver Fotograf und Sammler von Minolta-Kameras hat mir die Seite zahlreiche Male weitergeholfen, bei Kaufentscheidungen und bei technischen Fragen.
Unbedingt weitermachen!

Vielen vielen Dank!

Hallo Michael,
You did a wonderfull job creating this. I'm collecting the Minolta Dynax camera's as well as the lenses. So I can allways get inspiration about the technical innovations in the camera's.
Is it maybe possible to make a connection from the cameratype and a pdf of the manual. Its very difficult to find one, and often the printing isn"t possible.
Good luck and succes with your lovechild.
Gerald
Michael Hohner answers:
Remember that Minolta still has the Copyright for their manuals. After they have closed their download page for these manuals, there seems to be no more (legal) way to download the camera manuals. Obviously, I can't link to illegal download pages.
#11: Comment posted by Chris Freeman on February 29th, 2012 - 05:48:19 PM:
so, quick question, the 5000 is not listed under the film bodies from minoltas first line of af cameras. does that mean these first af cameras did not use the a-mount. now MOST digital cameras have sensors that are smaller than 35mm film fram and the dt lenses are designed to overcome the sensors size. these dt lenses, will they have an inverse crop effect when used on 35mm? this page is amazing and i look forward to starting my 35mm journey with my "new" maxxums.
Michael Hohner answers:
The 5000 is listed above. Look again.

There is no inverse crop effect. You will get strong vignetting when using DT lenses on 35mm cameras.

Hello Michael, I use a a700 and have only one Sony flash (HLV 3600). I also have a plethora of other Vivitar 283, 285, 285 HV and 4600's which I gang. Can I use the pc synch cords with the cameras pc plug without damaging the camera? Thanks again. Don
Michael Hohner answers:
According to the manual the PC sync connector can be used at up to 400V and with any polarity, so it should be safe.
#16: Comment posted by Don Scott on May 1st, 2013 - 04:02:53 AM:
Hi Michael, After your very positive review of the a77, I purchased a slightly used one on Ebay. I have a number of the older Minolta lenses, which will supposedly work with AF on the camera, but those older lenses focus only using MF and not on AF. The Sony lenses that I have do work. What am I missing? Thanks again (and again). Don
Michael Hohner answers:
Which are these lenses exactly that don't AF? Please use the lens table as reference.
#17: Comment posted by Don Scott on May 1st, 2013 - 03:16:58 PM:
Hello Michael, Before I list specific lenses, I noticed that unlike the a700 or a550, on all of the lenses I mention the focus wheel turns freely at all times regardless of AF/MF setting. The second thing I noticed is that almost all the lenses that I have tried are the original 1985 lenses. I bought them specifically because of the "old" metal build quality.

So far, 28/2.8 (1985), 50/1.7 (1985), 50/2.8 Macro (1985), 28-85/3.5-4.5 (1985), 28-135/ 4.0-4.5 (1985), 70-210/4.5-5.6 (1993).

It seems like the AF is "hunting" yet the focus doesn't change.

I have upgraded the firmware to 107. It seems like I am not seeing something.

Thanks again
Michael Hohner answers:
This sounds like the AF drive of the camera is broken. If you switch between AF and MF you should hear the AF clutch enganging and disenganging, and in AF mode you should not be able to manually focus a non-SSM/non-SAM lens.

In general, these lenses do work in the A77. You should contact the seller of the camera.

#18: Comment posted by Don Scott on May 2nd, 2013 - 12:36:29 AM:
Hi Michael, In looking at the screw drive in the body, it turns freely and I think that you're correct. I will be returning it to the seller. Thanks for your help. Don

The expansion cards of the xi series do not store images! They add functions to the camera. See here for an overview.

Hello Michael,
Having become a recently coolector and user of Minoltas and a DSLR Sony soon to be i've found your site a valuable source of help and information. Thanks.
A question if i may. I've recently purchased a Sigma 70-300 that only works in manual focus mode, (i knew this when buying). However, with the Dynax 5 it is manual only, but with the 404si the lens functions in both automatic and manual focus. Can you think of any reason why this woulld be?

Once again, thanks for the site.

Jim
Michael Hohner answers:
See the F.A.Q. list. Sigma is known for lenses that work on one generation of cameras and no longer work on the next generation.

Hi, could any1 tell me please what type of lenses i can use on a Minolta Dimage A2?
Michael Hohner answers:
This is a camera with a fixed lens. You can not put a different lens on it.
#22: Comment posted by PVCDroid on March 13th, 2014 - 05:02:44 PM:
Michael,

I see that you have listed the level gauge as present on the A6000. Sony told me it isn't available on the camera and no one has seen a screen shot with it present. Can you confirm?

Thanks!
Michael Hohner answers:
I think that was in the tech data of the Sony announcement. However, I can not find it anymore. I guess this was a mistake that they corrected later.
