    Your Sony will take any Sony or Minolta AF lens, however - since Sigma doesn't pay any licensing for the lens mount and is reverse engineered - there is a possability the older lenses will not work. The lenses can usually be 'upgraded' by Sigma to work, but that is only worthwhile for the more expensive lenses.

    Unless someone has tested that lens, it's impossible to say. The 28-300 is a massive range and I would guess that the 70-300 will be a much sharper/better lens.
