That's it, exactly: e.g. the Minolta XE-1 only supported A and M modes with MC lenses whereas a Minolta XD-7 offered S and P modes with MD lenses as well.

So MC and MD lenses have the same (SR-) mount, but they offer a different spectrum of functionality. A MC lens on a MD body only gives you A and M mode.

Or: the difference between Contax AE and MM lenses is comparable to the difference between Minolta MC and MD lenses - the latter version allows for program mode and is newer.

(I guess, around here more people are familiar with Minolta)


I jumped from Pentax Land, and I only own AF Minolta. So I don't actually know a lot on pre-AF Minolta stuff.

Done

If you have time would you be able to add some lens data in your post like several other sample threads (# elements/groups, aperture blades, sizes etc.)

TIA
