I think we need more information on the exact model of your camera!

If it says it is an A mount then it will fit your camera A Mount. Sony bought out Minolta but retained the same mount which is why it will fit.

That would be firmware - downloaded from the Sony site, plug your camera into the computer with a USB lead and follow the directions for firmware update.

No, that would be firmware from the Sigma site. Or what Sigma call a rechip
