Copied from a post on a Minolta forum elsewhere the latest news from Focus regarding the DSLR. "with a few snippets of info from the Minolta reps there. After playing with the A2 and drooling over the D7D, I decided to pester the reps for as much info as I could, obviously bearing it in mind that I wasnt about to get a full spec for the D7D from them. What I did manage to get from them was that the D7D will DEFINITELY be released straight after Photokina. They also told me that it will be compatible with ALL Minolta lenses dating back to 1985, all Dynax accessories will be compatible INCLUDING the VC7 grip. As for pricing they will be competing with the Canon 10D, Pentax ist*D etc, and was told to keep an eye on these prices nearer the release date for a Guestimate. I was also informed that the MP may change from the intended 6mp. Another biggie I got from them was that they will be releasing ALOT more lenses leading up to and after the release of the D7D, and that we will be seeing alot more of Minoltas presence in the Media etc. BTW they had a great looking stand which got the attention it deserved, it was packed most of the day." More encouraging news especially as the price, of the 10D is dropping /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif Roll on Photokina /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif <font color=blue>RonM CRIPN</font color=blue> Everyone has a photographic memory.
