    Can Minolta and Konica be mounted on the same adapter?
    I'm confused, because Minolta has Minolta Konica lines, and Konica has their own lineup (Konica Hexanon?).

    If there is a comprehensive guide/chart showing which lineage of lenses can be put on the same adapter, you can direct me to it too.

    Konica Minolta SLRs were the Minotla alpha mount. But Minolta has two mounts--MD (old) and alpha, which is now Sony. Konica had their own mount. Hexanon is a lens designation of the company, not a mount designations. The M-hexanon is a Leica M-mount, for example.

    Konica AR mount is used for their Autoreflex SLRs. It is not compatible with anything Minolta. Usually marked "K/AR" (3rd party) or "Konica AR" as I recall
