Maxxum Stsi with Nikon lens

  1. I have a Minolta Maxxum STsi and I want use some Nikon lenses. This lenses are the Nikkor ED AF 18-35mm and the Tamron AF 70-300mm Di. Is possible use this lenses on this camera? what adapter?

  2. I was surprised to find there is an optical adapter made by Fotodiox - see https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fotodiox-Adapter-SLT-A35-Minolta-Maxxuum/dp/B0048A6VS8, for example.

    I don't know enough about Nikon lens types, but if your lenses are F-type they can be mounted.

    However, image quality may be compromised with the lens element in the adapter; there is a 1.4x adjustment to enable infinity focus (your 18-35 will be effectively 25-50), and all automatic functions (aperture control, focusing) are lost.
     
  3. Or just pick up an inexpensive Nikon AF body for those lenses. You'll have AF, all exposure modes, and most importantly you will preserve the original focal length and no doubt enjoy superior sharpness. For example, a Nikon N75 at KEH is 29 USD in BGN condition. Might be hard to get the Nikon to Maxxum adapter at that price.
