I'd like to use selected Minolta & Sony AF lenses on a Nikon — say, a D700.
Can I, and if so how?
My first SLR was a Minolta SRT303B and I've used Minolta since. That was manual but I now have a goodish collection of Minolta and Sony AF lenses
What I most value is low noise high ISO performance, but Sony don't seem interested. I'm considering jumping ship to Nikon. I consider the D3s/D4 as the epitome of what I want but with a price and weight several times too large. A D700 seems just right and a D800 just might be - jury's still out. So
Of most interest to me is "porting" my Minolta 500mm f8 AF Reflex (mirror) lens as it is, I'm told, the only AF mirror ever made. Reason for valuing it is that while performance is only "good" it is far lighter and more compact than a 500mm AF anything else, so travels with me on business.
I have a few other Minolta lenses that would justify a modest expenditure adapting them — and using more would be nice if there is a one time adaptor cost achievable.
