Found my answer . I would have to buy a adapter and only then I would only be able to use manual focus.

Kenko makes the Kenko PRO 300 3.0x for the Sony/Minolta A Mount, but it only works with a few lenses, and it adds 3 f-stops to the lens' maximum aperture, so unless you're starting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2.8, you won't have autofocus.
