Nikon 1 body + Minolta SR/MD/MC lens
COMPATIBLE MF MA
Fortunately the flange focal depth allows conversion.
Fortunately adapters already exist, so you'll be able to use your SR lens on a Nikon 1 body. The adapter consists of a black tube and a screwed-on SR bayonet lock, which also contains an aperture mechanism shutter ring.

Don't forget however, that the Nikon 1 system uses a CX sensor, which has an even smaller, 2.7* crop factor than the M4/3 sensors compared to full-frames. This means that using an SR lens you'll get a pretty high focal length multiplier (you'll get a smaller image frame). You can find out more about different sensors and crop factors in this article: .The Minolta interchangeable lens SLR system's lock is officially called SR (that's the name of its bayonet lock). The original version has been manufactured between 1958-1967, and the frames they were manufactured for didn't support either TTL photometry or automatic modes. The original version of the SR, the MC was released in 1966 was the first to support TTL photometry (the lock is still an SR!). The second version named MD was released in 1977 (this version was able to provide feedback on the lowest aperture setting. The bayonet lock is still an SR, thus all three lenses have basically the same fixture type (they had different features only on their originally intended cameras). Converting them to digital cameras the SR/MD/MC markings mean no difference and are fully compatible.
