Similar lenses to Minolta

Hello ladies and gentlemen
Now I m working on film project using Red with box of Minolta lenses. (Minolta MC rokkor 58, Minolta MD rokkor 28 for example and others)
For one big scene I m thinking about using the second camera, but there is no second Minolta bayonet in the whole area.
Does anybody has any ideas on some simple lens variant to combine with those Minoltas who have own character in their look


minolta rokkor are great lenses, it's difficult to think to found faster other similar lenses. If you need a canon Ef Bayonet check Edmika adapter for many minolta to EF. I know is not a immediate solution, but if you want to keep minolta look (smooth constrast, sharper like blade, good and warm color) you must keep minolta lenses.
Or... shot with razor blade lenses, color chart every time, light temperature well setup and think to leave these camera B scenes in the hands of good colorist.
