Another photo question

Gary Evans Tallassee, TN
>As some of you may have read in my post about Carole's beautiful work, my digital camera took a dive a few weeks ago and now seems to have a permanent limp. Looks like I'm in the market for a new camera whether I want to be or not.

What are the deals right now on Digital cameras? I'm thinking at least 5 MP. I've looked a little at the digital camera bodies since my wife has a nice selection of lens for her Minolta SLR. It would also be nice to find one that uses the same memory cards as my Olympus D-510, since I already have a couple of extras.

I probably need some help with the language here. Do all lenses use the same mounts or do I need to find out exactly what kind of mount these lenses use? Her camera is probably 15+ years old.

If I have a good show in AZ, I'm thinking I may be able to spend $300-400 for the new camera. I would appreciate any and all comments.
