What a camera this is. Always wanted one, but could never afford one when brand new. Had to settle for the Minolta 800si; 9000(2nd hand) 600si; then the Dynax 7. I do not know why Minolta never caught on in the UK. They were at the front of technology development. I finally got the Dynax 9 in the last few weeks. Second hand, but well looked after.
