Old Maxxum system - new Sony DSLR?
Mar 13, 2010

My friend has a three-lens lineup (the ones with the diagonal grip lines on them) and an old autofocus Minolta from the 1980s - I'm not sure exactly which model but he says it autofocussed in the blink of an eye.

He isn't interested in using film any more and had had two of the big Fuji bridge cameras which he enjoys. (I don't rate them myself)

I'm thinking he might benefit from a new Sony DSLR but I don't know which of his old lenses will autofocus with the new bodies.
Anyone using this combination?

I'm actually thinking of taking his lenses into a shop to try on a Sony body : good idea?
