Anyone have any experience using this combination with a FotodioX Pro or Pro with connectors (or any other adapter)?

Thanks!

Do you mean the MC/MD mount?

I haven't used that particular Fotofiox.

I couldn't find anything that adapted Minolta MC/MD to EOS when I looked (years ago). What I did was get a Minolta lens to M42 body adapter, then an M42 lens to EOS body adapter and screwed them together. It didn't line up the lens when fully tight, so I had to add a spacer to stop the M42 parts where the body was oriented correctly... using cardboard. It works. I was able to use my old Minolta bellows on the EOS bodies.

I have a Minolta MD lens to Fuji body Fotodiox adapter and it is a bit sloppy... too much play in the mounts.

My Nikon lens to Fuji X K&F concept adapter is tight. Very nicely made, and cheap. I wouldn't hesitate to try one.

Here is a K&F concept adapter with glass... you could probably remove the elements. https://www.kentfaith.com/minolta-lens-adapter/KF06.083_minolta-md-to-canon-eos-mount-adapter If you write to them, they might have other ideas too.

Thanks for the information, John. There are many options with and without glass for the Minlta MD lens to Canon EOS bodies. It's the Minolta body connection to Canon EF lens that's proving elusive to locate. I was never a Minolta user; I imagine the older Minolta bodies would not be able to effectively use the Canon EF lenses. What lens were you using on your bellows? to use Canon lenses, I need to find a pair of adaptors like you mentioned (Minolta to M42 (or some other make) to Canon EF).

As EOS lenses won't give infinity on a Minolta MD body, it is unlikely such an adapter has been made. However, an Ebay seller RafCamera could probably make you one.
