Meta Reviews Her Best Digital Camera Gear – Meta’s Best Minolta AF Lenses

Many Beginner Photographers don’t know that you can use Inexpensive Minolta AF Lenses on all Sony Digital Cameras; Sony A-Mount Cameras and Sony E-Mount Cameras (with the New LA-EA5 A-Mount Adapter). Meta’s Red Mushrooms (Photo: Left) was shot with her Minolta AF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens mounted on her Sony a77 II Digital Camera.

There were nearly 17 million Minolta AF Lenses manufactured in Japan by Minolta Company Limited, between 1985 and 2006, making these Minolta AF Lenses very easy to find in “Mint” or “Like New Condition” at about 10% of the Cost of a Brand new Sony Lens. When Sony took over the division in 2006, 18 Minolta AF Lenses were rebranded as Sony A-Mount Lenses.
