    Looking for some guidance.



    I am a returning hobbiest looking to update some of my equipment. I have been a old (some say relic) Minolta x700. Over the years i have purchased different lens for it. and was wondering if any new Digital SLR bodies would expect any of these lens. Trying to not spend a hole lot of money getting back into the hobby.

    Any help?

    Do these Alpha series have similar customer reviews to any of the Nikon D?

    The sony cameras apear to be excellent DSLRs just like canon, Nikon, and the rest of the manufacturers...

    Minolta manual focus MD lenses will port to a Canon DSLR...

    minolta MD and alpha have nothing in common.
    the only reasonable adapter is the M42 series of lenses (Super Takumar) etc
    it has no element and some have a focus indicator
