Minolta lenses
May 31, 2012

Hi,

This is a dumb question from a Canon shooter I teach basic photography to people just starting out. So some are young and short on cash. I had a gentleman offer up his Minolta 7000I system including two Minolta AF lenses. Are the lenses of that time compatible with Sony mount cameras today and if so is there a loss of functions..?

My thought is if the lenses were usable the student would only have to worry about a body and memory to start out
Thanks
