    Need a new digital SLR to accept Konica FS-1 lens.

    I have an older Konica FS-1 that I no longer use, and want to find a new digital SLR camera base that will accept my old FS-1 lens - Sigma 35-70, and Promaster 75-300 zoom. Does Sony offer such a thing?

    Any suggestions regarding this are appreciated!

    Hi Don,

    I did a little research. I think you have little chance of fitting your old lenses to a digital camera. I use Minolta mount MC/MD lenses on my Maxxum cameras with an adapter. I also have an adapter to my Canon digital. I did not find any adapter for the AR lenses.

    Sorry, I tried

    Don,

    I just saw this post today as I was researching a solution to the same problem you have. I hope you've already found a solution by now, but if not, I have found an adapter ring from Fotodiox that will allow you to use the lenses you have for your Konica FS-1 on the DSLR. If you don't know which one to get for your DSLR, contact the company at their website and they will help you get the right one.

    I have an up coming event and want to shoot tethered. Lightroom 5 doesn't support this for my a99 but I found a great plugin that has made it possible. So if you need to shoot tethered here is an option.....

    Hello Greg:

    I bet that lens is going to "Shine" mounted on your a99 ! :thumbsup:

    I can hardly wait until you get it, and I know you will share many great
    photos with your new camera...
