I was hoping someone could help me out. My Dad has an OLD (early 1970's) Minolta SRT-101 35mm SLR film camera and a wide variety of lenses. I am also very interested in purchasing a Sony Alpha DSLR-100. I took one of his lenses to a fairly knowledgeable camera store in my area and the lens was a little small for the body. They told me that the connections were a little different and that as far as they were aware, no adapter existed.

Does anyone know if there is any adapter out there that will allow these old (most were made between 1970 and 1973) lenses to work with the DSLR-100?

I've done all the research I can stand on this camera and the old SRT-101 and I haven't been able to find anything yet. I know that a lot of the 1985+ lenses that Minolta made are compatible, but I haven't found anything else.

I am very, VERY impressed with this camera, but I don't want to go out and spend tons of money on lenses when I have a bunch already.

Can anyone help?
