    Silly question... Specifically in reference to the Sony Alpha, but also for other brands...

    I know you can use film based lenses for your DSLR, and just deal with the crop, but I'm curious as to whether or not you can use your kit lense on your film SLR.

    I still plan on shooting a lot of pro slide film, as well as digital. And i'm a minolta guy, so i'll be getting the Alpha.

    I was just wondering if I could use the 18mm lens that comes with the alpha on my Minolta cameras. My current widest lens is a 24mm.

    Thoughts?

    you'll pay a premium for slide film but not for a lens that will lend it self to better colors and contrast? spend the money on the lens, not film

    Slide film is fun to work with from what I remember of it.

    yup, but a crappy lens is still a crappy lens on slide film.

    I have like 100 rolls of astia, velvia and provia in my fridge just chillin :o
