I have a Minolta X-700 which I found in an antique store, priced at $40. It is in absolute mint condition, including the lens, and is considered to be one of the best film SLRs Minolta ever produced. Since I bought it, I have accumulated a variety of lenses and other accssories and consider it to be the best camera system I have ever owned. Sadly I have succumbed to the lure of digital nowdays and rarely use it. (PS: it weighs a tonne)

Still have my trusty Maxxum 700si, but don't use it much now that I have been into dSLR's.

Hi,
a little bit old this thread, but however.
I still own a Minolta 9xi (1996) which is a very good camera. I loved to shoot pictures with that camera. When the Konica-Minolta D7D came on the market, it was no question to change to an other brand. And I wanted to use my lenses from the 9xi. So I bought the KM D7D.
From that time on, I almost never used my 9xi, besides of some occasions where I wanted to have a second SLR, ready to shoot,with a different lens like I used on the KM D7D, because I didn't have much time to always change lenses. Still those times I was amazed of the picture quality of the 9xi.
Now I have as my main camera the Sony A900; and the 9xi is in perfect working condition in my photo stuff cabinet.

Looks like Karl started this, he's still shooting film and posting on here, so seems OK to resume the thread. I don't have any Minolta or Sony but have some Konica, once they merged does that make them all the same 'family' now? :lol:

I have a variety of film cameras, besides Konica, have Ricoh, Canon, Voigtlander etc. I buy vintage cameras to collect but also use them.
