I'm not well versed on when Minolta and Konoka merged but I have a Minolta 5000i camera and a full complement of lenses and filters. My wide angle lens cost as much as the camera did. I had heard that Minolta's Maxxum camera did accept older lenses although others have said that wasn't true. Now with Sony owning the Konoka/Minolta camera division, I really have no idea where that leaves the question of using those lenses. Maybe it would be better to sell my film setup and use that toward purchasing a similar DSLR set up? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Konica Minolta and Sony DSLR models will work with all Minolta Autofocus (a.k.a., Maxxum, Dynax, Alpha, Minolta A-Mount) lenses, and you'll have the benefit of an in body stablization system with all of your lenses.

The Sony DSLR-A100 was based mostly on the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D
