    well they brought out the 7000, that put me right off cameras, at least for a few years!

    Why? The 7000 was the most significant development in 35mm cameras since Herr Barnack's prototype.
    OK, it's pretty poor by today's standards, but it was the dog's danglies in 1985! /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    Indeed, a lovely camera and may well prove to be very collectable in future years as it is generally recognized as the "daddy" of modern day body integral AF cameras and the one that started the whole AF ball rolling! OK, so the AF is sluggish and noisy by todays standards but I know Larry is in the habit of switching the AF off a lot anyway on his EOS. I bet if he had a 7000 he would love it!

    minolta 7000 and the birth of AF

    i wouldnt mind a 7000 now, but back then i got put off by it all, the old solid cameras being taken over by modern plastick jobs,I wanted a new camera but not an AF one which i thought was a step backwards.
    And at the time all those bridge camears were out in force and to me the 7000 just appeared to be another bridge camera.Then i changed my mind, wanted a Yashica 230AF cos of the trpa focus, then nearly bought an EOS 6?0 which was still quite pricey then, and after trying the Canon i knew thats what i wanted so waited till the price of the 500N came down and lo and behold they bring out the 300, even better.
    So i bought one.
    Sometimes i wish I'd have p/xed my X300 for X700 tho.

    .......I know where you are coming from Larry. I myself thought that AF was a load of shite and just a flash in the pan when it came out, but history has proved otherwise. AF is very usefull for my degraded eyesight but otherwise I think it is still a total waste of time!
