Nikon body + Minolta SR/MD/MC lens
PARTIALLY COMPATIBLE MF MA
This shouldn't work in theory due to the difference in flange focal depth, but...
Actually, there are adapters for the SR/MD/MC lenses (infinity focus will be impossible), or lens adapter that compensates the difference (infinity will be possible) with certain compromises.
You can read about the compromises of speedbooster adapters in this article more detailed.
Simple adapter rings won't make inifinity zoom possible (the exact distance depends on the specific lens, but there won't be much of a difference).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.
