I'm looking for a new tele lens for my alpha 200 to function aside my 17-80mm kit lens. I came across a Sigma 70-300 mm F4-5.6 II Macro Super for a good price. Now this lens came from a minolta dynax 5 and I was wondering if this lens would also function on my alpha as some minolta lenses are also functioning on the alpha's. But I'm not sure if it will fit because I cant find a compatibility scheme for third party lenses. So my question is will it fit on my alpha?

If it fitted the Minolta 5D, it'll fit the Alpha DSLRs too. However, perhaps not all features will be supported, like ADI for flash photography.

Ok, well don't use flash that often anyway as I photograph outside most of the time. But good to know that it will work than, thanks.
