Looking for info about using old Minolta AF lenses via Sony LA-EA3/4 adapters on FE-mount

Hi,

I have noted that there are a lot of old Minolta AF lenses out there that ain't too costly. Meaning the original A-mount lenses from 1985 up to 2003 and also later Konica-Minolta onwards up to 2006 when Sony took over the business.

I am looking for info on which, if not all lenses that works with the Sony LA-EA3 and 4 adapters.

I do understand that for lenses without AF-motor one needs the LA-EA4 adapter. I have also understood that the mirror in it is fairly sensitive to dirt and fingerprints etc and can not be cleaned?

I found this Sony info page on the adapters:

https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37304/~/what-is-the-difference-between-the-la-ea1,-la-ea2,-la-ea3,-and-la-ea4-lens

I also found this Sony page speaking of some not compatible Konica-Minolta lenses:

https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/32729/related/1/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xNTAzNDM1OTM5L3NpZC9xc1BGdFBxbg%3D%3D

But is this all that don't work? Do all the only Minolta branded lenses work? Are there any info pages somewhere on this theme? Do the Minolta branded lenses send Exif data?

Thanks for the help!
