Does anyone know Minolta lenz on a Canon rebel body adapter?
It doesent make a difference to me if its Auto or manual. im actually not expecting to find one that will still work with Auto focus.

I have a very good zoom lens on my minolta (film) camera, so i want to know if its possible to use it with my canon Digital rebel.

I hardly use the film camera anymore so if i cannot find an adapter i may consider trying to trade the zoom lens for a canon lens. but since its used, I only expect to get credit toward a canon lens

I don't know of one and a quick look on the Internet did not find one. You'd be better off to sell the lens on eBay than do a trade-in. The last time I tried trading in a lens I was offered about $50 as a trade-in value on a lens that originally cost $450. I sold the lens on ebay for $350.
Cheers,
rfs
