I haven't used this camera for about two years, pulled it out, and wanted to change lenses... can't remember the "combination of buttons etc" that it takes to release the lens (engineered to protect the innards of the camera body when the lens is removed). Can't find book, and I am a trillion miles from a minolta dealer. Can someone advise me? fabelist@airmail.net, go ahead, shoot me directly. I know it is at least two buttons... Thanx for help.:)

According to the manual ( http://kmpi.konicaminolta.us/eprise/main/kmpi/content/cam/cam_manual/cam_manual_Attachments/Maxxum_400si_Part1.pdf ) all you have to do is press the lens release button and turn the lens. See page 12 of the manual.
