Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.
It is getting more difficult to find someone qualified to repair SLR film cameras but there are still a few of us left and I'll be happy to help you any way I can.
As for being able to use the older, Minolta lenses on newer, digital cameras, the simple answer is no, they are completely incompatible. First, because there are no newer Minolta digital cameras. Minolta has been out of the camera business for over 15 years now, and second, the older lenses are mechanical in nature where newer ones for digital cameras are electronic. They don't cross over.
