Think I've found the answer to this. The one I was looking at was an md fit, I've spotted a few other A type fit which look like the type I need. Thanks anyway. Alan

You are very, very right. MD & MC lenses can work with an adapter but are more trouble than they're worth in MHO. If the lens very plainly says AF on it it will work perfectly.

ya, the lens should say AF and/or Maxxum on it.

Any Minolta lens with an aperture ring on it will not autofocus, and not mount directly on you Sony DSLR.
