List of Minolta A-mount lenses

Minolta and Konica Minolta released the following lenses for Minolta A-mount cameras between 1985 and 2006.

While most auto-focus lens designs were new developments, some optical constructions were derived from Minolta SR-mount lenses (as indicated). When Sony took over the system in 2006, 18 lenses were reintroduced as Sony A-mount lenses. Of those, most lenses are optically, mechanically and electrically identical to their Minolta predecessors and differ only in their outer appearance, however, three have seen subtle changes in the optics and electro-mechanics.

All Minolta and Konica Minolta A-mount lenses are compatible with Sony A-mount cameras.

Up into the mid 1990s, A-mount lenses for the North American market (where the A-mount camera bodies were labelled Maxxum) were engraved Maxxum AF rather than just AF (as was used in the rest of the world, including in those regions otherwise using the Dynax and α labels for the cameras). Although some buyers associated either the Maxxum AF or the AF designation with a higher quality, both types of lenses were built to exactly the same specifications and quality standards in the factory, and were only used to improve trackability and dry out the gray market. They differed only in their name plate and part numbers (????-1?? for AF, ????-6?? for Maxxum AF). A similar scheme had been used by Minolta in the 1960s and 1970s with their Rokkor and Rokkor-X SR-mount lens designations. The Maxxum AF lenses introduced in 1985 originally used a "crossed XX" font, which was soon dropped by Minolta after a trademark lawsuit with Exxon.

Apo Apochromatic lens element(s)
(D) or D "Distance encoder", lens provides subject distance information for utilization in the Advanced Distance Integration (ADI) flash mode and other features. While the "(D)" designation is used on the box and in the documentation, the lenses just feature a "D" instead. Requires 8 lens contacts; lenses with only 5 contacts cannot support this feature.
DT "Digital Technology", lenses for cameras with APS-C (or Super-35mm) size sensors, only. Cannot reasonably be used on 24x36mm full-frame cameras.
G "Gold" series, Minolta's line-up of high-grade lenses. The "G" status does not occur as label on the lenses, but is indicated by a decorating ring on the lens.
High Speed High Speed upgraded gearing for faster autofocus. As indicated, three lenses were upgradeable in authorized service centers as well.
II Version II. Some lenses underwent more than just cosmetic changes, and are referred to as second version, in particular, when the optics have changed completely.
New Restyled (not a designation found on the lens), aesthetic changes (such lenses were labelled "New" or "Neu" or "(N)" on the box and in the documentation by Minolta, but not specifically labelled on the lens itself).
SSM "SuperSonic Motor", silent in-lens ultrasonic motor used on some lenses. Requires 8 lens contacts; lenses with only 5 contacts cannot support this feature. Can be used with manual focusing on cameras without SSM support (that is, Minolta film bodies released before 2000 - Minolta Dynax/Maxxum/α-9/9Ti can be upgraded by service).[47][48][49][50]
Power or xi Motorized zoom. Requires 8 lens contacts; lenses with only 5 contacts cannot support this feature.
