    I had an adapter for Minolta that is just a screw-on and it works fine. I bought another adapter and it also has a silver push button on the side that seems to move something inside the adapter?? It doesn't seem to do anything when I press it though? :confused: Is it for a different type of Minolta lens? Other than that , adapter seems to work fine.

    That's a locking pin and both brands of adapters that I have use this to lock the lens. I haven't seen one without this feature which mimics the Minolta camera mount.
