Virtually all the old Minolta lenses are compatible with the new Sony SLRs.
For the two you mention, you will need to check whether the lenses are the AF or MF versions.
Both will fit, but AF is the auto-focus one, and MF is (obviously!) manual-focus.

Unfortunately, there are electrical differences between early and later Sigma lenses. Although the bayonet connection is the same, and the lens can fit, it will not necessarily connect electrically with the connections on the camera. Sigma can modify the lens for you, but this can be quite costly, and you may be cheaper to look for an alternative lens.

clean brass contacts with qtip and rubbing alcohol. let air dry couple of hours. do the body and the lens. hope that helps

This is a lens problem, the AF motor of the lens is trying to engage the gears. Sometime it works, sometimes it does not... It happened to my sigma 70-300. The only solution is to have it repaired. If under warranty it should be free, if not.... might be cheaper to buy a new lens.
