    Greetings Comrades!

    Just got back from the Thrift Shop and walked away with (3) Minolta Maxxum AF Full-Frame lenses and a. Minolta Maxxum 7000 body, all of them in Mint Condition. I can see no scratches whatsoever on any of the lenses and they all have UV Filters on them.

    (From LEFT to RIGHT: Minolta Maxxum AF 28mm f/2.8, Minolta Maxxum AF 35-70mm f/4, Minolta Maxxum AF 70-210mm f/4

    Now here's my situation (take it into account when answering my question):

    I currently have a Sony NEX-6 with a Minolta Rokkor PG MC 50/1.4, Minolta Rokkor 70-210, Sony PZ16-50, and a cheap Fujian 35mm/1.4.

    Are there any alternatives to the Sony LA-EA1 (and 2) adapters to get my new Minolta Maxxum lenses onto my NEX-6? Or should I sell all of them for a profit and get the Lens Turbo or Sigma 10-20mm I have been wanting for a while?

    They are all great lenses in great condition so. I don't know if its best to adapt them or sell them for a profit and get something i can use. I could easily sell them for a huge profit on here or eBay, so please keep that in mind.

    Thanks everyone and Happy Holidays!

    I would sale them and turn a profit. The Beercan 70-210 f/4 is a wonderful lens, the only problem is it's slow to focus. Used it on several Sony bodies and sold it later. The others I've never had interest in, so I can't say,
