Perhaps he was referring to the original Alphas that only used Sony Memory Sticks, which were not only more expensive per GB, but also only had one or two manufacturers.
I actually have a couple of older Minolta lenses from a film Minolta SLR I still have, but I didn't go with a Sony DSLR when it was time to get rid of film. I just wasn't interested in buying a Sony brand camera.
