I'd first suggest cleaning the lens contacts on both the cam and the lens.

Just bought the a77 a week ago and have tried all my minolta lens Beercan 70/210, APO 100/400 and my favorite the 500 reflex and all work perfectly in fact better then when they were in the A700.

Cheers Tassie

I just tried a whole bunch of lens on an A77. Old Minolta lens including a 50 F1.7, the 28-105, and the 100-300 all work. My newer Sigma 17-70 works fine but also an older Sigma 105 macro and a really old 400 F5.6 work as well. My old Tamron 1.4 teleconverter works. The Minolta 5600 HS flash work fine as well. So far everything I own from 20 years of Minolta and Sony all work.

Just in case you hadn't noticed the OP posted a completely false statement and I don't think has re-posted to any response to him.

The only known issues with Sony's SLT cameras are with Sigma lenses. However, sigma will rechip their lenses if you return them to Sigma.
I have no problem using Sigmas 18-200 and 55-200 on my A37.

Sometimes Sigma and Tamron lenses may need to be updated if they are older

Best,
Jay
