The additional 3 contacts were introduced when Minolta came out with the so
called xi lenses, which incorporated motorized zoom. It allowed also, that
the camera took control of the zoom too... that idea died quickly.
I'm not sure, if the additional 3 contacts are now used for SSM lenses and
D lenses, since I'm not owning any one of them.

All lenses with 5 contacts will work ...
