    Niall,

    If you already have a 50mm Minolta prime then you have a cracking piece of glass which will fit either the 505 or the 5, the only major points are what capabillity are you looking for from the camera body, if it's AF capabillity the 5 wins hands down (it has the fastest AF in its class and above) again the metering and exposure capabillity are better than the 505, and also it has a better allround specification, in essence it is a 'cut-down' 7 which in my oppinion is the 'dogs danglies'. I now have a 7 and reckon of all the Minoltas that I've owned or handled it is the best there is, I've also used a 505 and handled a 5 and I was more impressed with the 5.
    As to Minolta being the best on the Market, being biased I've got to say yes, being honest each manufacturer has its own strengths and if you could get an amalgamation then you'd probably end up with something close to the ideal SLR.
