    Hey, I have a qustion.

    I have heard that the older "Maxxum" Minolta lenses will work in the new
    Sony model. Does anyone know if they are referring to the 35 mm film

    I am not up on the Minolta stuff like I was with the older stuff, and I
    am not all that sure.

    Hey, I have an answer!

    Sony acquired the Minolta technology and slapped their name on all the
    Minolta stuff to sell as their own. The new Sony A100 Alpha DSLR uses
    the same Minolta A mount, so any older lenses that fit the A mount can
    be used.

    Actually that isn't true. Sony did a lot more to Minolta's stuff than just
    slap their name on it. A lot of the technology in the Alpha was updated by
    Sony, updated considerably. At least be honest with your spewing of facts!

    Hello, Hebee Jeebes:

    Where is the evidence of this?
