But it uses the old minolta a mounting... Now peeps, I have a bunch of old lenses that were handed down to me. Could anyone tell me if any of these are any good? or worth selling?

1) Vivitar 35-70MM 1:3.5 ZOOM
2) Vivitar 28-200MM 1:3.5 - 5.3 MACRO
3) 49MM SKYLIGH (1A) TELE MACRO
4) 135MM 1:2.8 MINOLTA MD TELE ROKKOR

Can't tell you about the lenses you listed.

But I can say I have the Sony a350 and a couple older Minolta lenses and I absolutely love it! A few Canon and Nikon users have turned their noses up at it, but I love it. Looking at upgrading to an a700. Just invest in some nice glass and a flash (if you are going to need one) and you'll be fine!

Can't tell you much about those Vivitar lenses, but I sure would love to get my hands on that 135mm :D Sounds great for portrait work (not that I do much of that anyway).

#3 is a filter. :)
