Like to revise an old topic .....
Have $3k worth of Minolta equipment, lenses, cameras, flashes, etc.
While I use $150 digital Kodak???
Hoped that since some time had passed and technology had evolved, that there would now be a decent way to convert these 35mm SLR cameras to digital.
Anyone have a clue of who has the camera back to do it?

Welcome to the forums.

Please let us know exactly what Minolta lenses and flashes you have.

If they're Minolta Autofocus lenses (a.k.a., Minolta A, Dynax, Maxxum or Alpha mount lenses), then they'll work on any Sony dSLR Model (Sony A100, A200, A230, A300, A330, A350, A380, A450, A550, A700, A850. A900), and they would have Autofocus as well as the benefits of an in camera body stabilization system that works with all lenses you use on the camera.

If you're using older MC/MD mount manual focus lenses (i.e., old Rokkors, etc.), then you can find a variety of lens adapters for many lens mounts.

You will want to give more information on the lenses you have for better responses.
