I think I know the answer to this, but I'll ask the experts. I just dug my old Minolta's out of storage. They are an SRT 101, SRT 102 and an XG7. They all have manual focus lenses, not the Maxxum auto-focus. These lenses will not fit on my Dad's Maxxum SLR camera so I'm assuming they won't work on the Sony Alpha dSLR. Is this correct? Is there a digital camera that would accept this type of lens mount?
Thanks and take care,
Mary.

Thanks Minolatnut. This is what I figured. Quality matters, so unless I can get my Dad to sell me his old Maxxum lenses, I'll look into other digital SLR options.
Thanks,
Mary.
