Vintage Minolta Glass on K7, K30 etc.?

I have a friend who is contemplating buying an upgrade ro his P&S digital camera and manual SLR (Minolta). Since he would like to continue using his old Minolta lenses he isn't sure which way to go: either sell of his old glass (= big loss, also a sentimental issue); Sony NEX (a little bit unbalanced), Sony DSLR (hmm...) or go for a Pentax with a Minolta-adapter (Pentax having a reputation for working well - metering! - with older manual lenses). I could lend him my K7 - a Minolta-adapter is cheao - to do some testing. What would you recommend?
