Sony bought the camera business from Minolta, so you could probably use your current lenses with a Sony Alpha camera body.

If you decide to go with a different manufacturer for the camera body, you won't be able to AF or AE with your lenses.

Take a look at the Sony A35, A55, (New) A57, A65 and A77.

  • 'Full Frame' is the new 'Medium Format'.
