  welcome susan,
if it has a maxxum mount,yes.maxxums have the a type bayonet.the brand of lens doesn't matter,it's the mount.
if it does say for minolta AF-seems it should.
maybethere's more knowledge here.

  thanks Sam - I'm not exactly there (picture taking) yet tho it does appear to fit the mount - I need to find my camera guide from way back when - it is mounted but w/film in - won't shoot/move . . . . I think I have messed up the auto function somehow . . . getting the red arrow and nothing else in view so have to get that off. Hard to believe I've had some kind of AF Minolta for 15 years ! SM
