I doubt that you can interchange your Minolta Lenses with Nikon, Canon or any other top brands. There is available adapters to allow this however sometimes the autofocus and other coupled items are lost in the process. For $5. if it works, you did OK!

RE: minolta maxxum 5000

Great news, Minolta Maxxum lenses are compatible with Sony DSLR cameras. Sony bought out Minolta and they used the same mount and contacts for the autofocus. I am sure of this because I own a Sony A300 nad have several minolta lenses. You got a great buy, congrats!
