Original versions only. I need to scavenge the distance window, so non-working and cheap is what I want. Or if you happen to have just the window for sale, even better!

Isn't it common with some other models? I would expect that. Could it be the same as any of the cheap zooms?
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

Physical compatibility is only one aspect. I would like to retain the same DOF scale and colors, which I can get only with the original 24 and 28 lenses.

I believe the depth-of-field scales are printed on the glass and those vary a bit. The scales on the Minolta AF 50mm F1.7 and F1.4 lenses are very close to the ones on the 24 and 28 F2.8 lenses. The one on the 20 F2.8 is less close. The scale on the 50 F1.7 RS is far off and the glass has more rounded corners, so it probably wouldn't even fit.

I just noticed that Sony's 3D renderings of the SAL20F28 and SAL28F28 have their focus distance scales and depth-of-field windows swapped--how weird. It looks like those use the more square cornered windows.
