I have a sony A200 and lens as fitted as standard.
I have been given 2 x YASICA lenses 75-200 & 35-70.
My question is what do i require to fit the lenses to the sony camera or can it be done even.

I have had a look around but cant see anything that answers my question,i need some kind of converter i assume.
I know Minolta/sony are the same fittings etc so is there another make that has the same fitting as these yasica lenses i have so i can do another search.
As i have just started out this is the cheapest option at the moment to get me started then i can buy the proper item and sell these lenses.

Any help/advice or link towards what i require would be nice.

Thanks very much.

I don't know for certain about your lenses but i bought an adapter off ebay that allows me to use the M42 screw mount lenses off my old Zenit 35mm Slr's on my A200.
If you search on Ebay for "lens adapters" and narrow your search from there you might find what you need.
Hope you find what you need.
Say what you really think....i'll only cry a little bit.
