Yes, lenses that work on the Maxxum (a.k.a., Dynax) 3000i will also work on a KM or Sony dSLR model.

The value of the 70-210mm would depend on which one. The Beercan (70-210mm f/4) is the most desirable. The lenses 70-210mm lenses that are down to f/5.6 on their long end (70-210mm f/4.5.-5.6) are not worth much and are best avoided on a dSLR for good quality.

The 50mm is probably a 50mm f/1.4 or f/1.7 (unless it's a 50mm f/2.8 Macro). These are all good (any even the cheaper f/1.7 is probably worth close to what the package price is if it's in great shape).

To get a better feel for what a vendor is selling these types of lenses for, go to and look at the Camera Store under 35mm (not digital), Minolta Autofocus and you'll see choices for zoom lenses, etc. They usually have these lenses in stock.
