I am looking to buy a Sony A77 mark II as the Minolta I have has an issue with it and itís about time I upgraded. Being as I have 3 Sigma lenses with Minolta fit, will these lenses fit the Sony camera, I read or heard somewhere that the fitting on both cameras are the same, can anyone help.

Many thanks

They should fit but I would weigh up pros and cons of choosing a new camera based on the three Sigma lenses, it may turn out to be a false economy. I use Sony (but emount) and I like it but you can pay through the nose for some stuff when compared to Canikon

Older Sigma lenses can require a rechip which Sigma do help people with.

I bought the A77-II a few years ago for the same reason, I have both Minolta A mount and Tamron A mount lenses. I also have a Sony flash. A flash adapter was needed but apart from that it all works perfectly. In hindsight though I wish I had gone for a smaller bodied Sony E-mount camera to save on weight! It would have meant changing all my lenses but may have been worth it.

My 2 needs, after 65 years of thinking about it, are equipment size and acceptability of the images types that I usually take (vacation and walk-about).
So I am down to a pocketable P'n'S and an SLR:
1. FujiFilm Finepix F100fd P'n'S (bought used for $7) and a
2. Sony SLT-a58 with Sony 18135 zoom. (the cheapest SLR I could find with more than a 3x zoom: $570 open box).
So far, all the images I have uploaded here are with the P'n'S.
