I’d just be careful to make sure that no mechanical parts from your older Minolta lenses protrude deep into the Canon body.

My older Pentax K mount lenses have a metal tab that protrudes (deeply) into the Pentax camera body. This metal tab is used by the camera to stop down the iris when the shutter is released.

I suspect that even if I could find a PK-EF mount, I would need to cut off this metal tab to prevent it causing damage inside my 40D.

Cheers

Dennis
