Minolta Lens Question

4 months 1 week ago #719038 by NeuroDoc
Hi  I have a Minolta AF 300mm F2.8apo lens. What camera can i use that with? Im assuming newer digital cameras are not compatible. Would it only be DSLR? and if so, which brands?

Hi NeuroDoc .

I'm no expert,  but there is a possibility that some of the earlier Sony DSLRs and  the earlier versions of the alpha7 'S' and 'R' series mirrorless cameras  may accept  some Minolta lenses .
I understand  that Sony  bought out the Minolta brand and ,  for a while at least ,  made some of their DSLRs and  posssibly some mirrorless cameras backwards compatible with legacy Minolta lenses (to an extent) .
Even if it fits onto the Sony mount, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the lens' automation features such as auto-focus and auto-exposure control .
But seek other advice in either the   https://www.photographytalk.com/forum/all-other-cameras   or   https://www.photographytalk.com/forum/sony-camera-forum-sony-alpha-a55-and-all-sony-cameras-lenses   who may know better .
