What is the difference between 8 pin and 5 pin lenses?

Discuss Konica Minolta digital cameras and digital SLRs such as the Maxxum / Dynax 7D or 5D.7

What is the difference between 8 pin and 5 pin lenses?

Post by calvin »

Just wondering why some lenses have 8 pin connections and some have 5 pin connections?

All my current lenses have 5 pin connections but a new lens that I am looking to get has 8 pins and I was wondering why the difference and is there any advantaages to the 8 pin over the 5 pin?
