    Default Minolta A to Canon EOS adapter

    I've tried googling and searching this folder and failed to find anything relevant, so here goes;

    Does anyone know of where I could get hold of a Minolta A to Canon EOS adapter or has some guide on a simple operate & transplant procedures? Most appreciated..

    P.S .. Just to add, I'm thinking of adapting a STF lens, so a mechanism to manupilate the "F" aperture would be really useful.

    Don't think it is possible,
    Minolta A is 44.5 mm Mount Register and EOS is 44 mm. No one probably makes an adapter like this.

    Why forgo? Just get a second hand KM5D or A100 and you are set?

    .. thanks for the input guys, I have decided to forgo the use of the 135 STF as taking on another system is really beyond my means, already have 2.

    And secondly.. I realise that I already have 2 lenses that matches the bokeh of the legendary 135 STF.....

    As such, I'm closing this thread.
