Their mount was directly based on Minolta AF. Since the lenses are so cheap, you could maybe try a mod. But they were not very good - they were made by Tomioka optical factory, not the Yashica-Contax Zeiss controlled unit.
David, Thank You for the reply.
I think I'll give it a try anyway with a Yashica AF 50mm F1.9 Lens of mine. I have a maxxum AF and other AF Lenses that are flood damaged, but the metal lens mounts look O-K.
If this works, I will have the equivalent of a 75mm F1.9 Lens that I can try out on my KM7D. It may not be the best lens in the bag, but it may do in a pinch.
By the way, do you know where I could get a set of Lens Aperture (Iris) Blades for a Minolta Maxxum Crossed XX AF 50mm F1.7 (22) Lens?
If not, Thanks anyway.
Noteworthy: Yashica 35mm AF SLR's did have a unique "Trap Focus" Mode, which came in handy years ago, for catching a 'Cookie Jar' thief.
