You have a pre-Dynax Minolta manual focus mount lens. When Minolta went autofocus in the 1980s they developed an entirely new mount (just as Canon did a year or two later). Old Minolta mount lenses will not fit the Maxxum/Dynax system bodies.

I have a Minolta Dynax 7000i. Would the lenses I have with this camera fit the new digital camera's like the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D ?

Yes, all Minolta Autofocus Lenses will work (a.k.a., Maxxum, Dynax, Minolta AF, Mionlta A Mount).

Your Dynax 7000i uses the newer lens mount system (that started with the Maxxum/Dynax 7000 in 1985, which was the worlds' first Autofocus SLR).

This is the same lens mount used on the new Maxxum (a.k.a., Dymax) 5D and 7D Digital SLR models.
