    I just bought the Nikon D5000.

    However, I have an old Minolta X-700, you know, the kind that takes 35MM film.

    I have not had it out of the case in over 30 years. I have 3 lenses, and of course they don't work on the Nikon. I was wondering if they have any value or if they would work on any of the newer digital cameras.

    One of my favorite lenses was the zoom, a Promaster Spectrum 70-210 MM. Such a waste that they have no use whatsoever to me, looking to get rid of everything.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    I have a few lenses from the old days too. They were good glass for their day but they don't hold up to today's DSLR standards as well as I'd hoped.

    I have an EF 20-35mm f3.5/4.5, an EF 70-210mm f4.0 push/pull macro and a couple of Quantaray's. I used them for nearly a year on my 7D before getting some L. They did ok but the camera was just a camera until I got good glass for it.

    In fact, I was getting better pictures with my Sony DSC H5 with Zeiss glass until I got the good Canon glass.
