“Without doubt the finest camera I have owned in 30...”

Written on: 04/11/2001 by Charles G. (1 review written)

Good Points
Superb lens, extraordinary depth of field
Control and ease of operation, considering the complexity of features

Bad Points
Electronic view finder resolution and contrast range are a bit low.

General Comments
Without doubt the finest camera I have owned in 30 years of fairly dedicated SLR usage. Enough manual control to keep even a dyed-in-the-wool fiddler like me happy, and capabilities in auto mode that make manual control (almost) redundant.

Minolta have clearly thought VERY hard about this design and the results show it. Flash control is excellent, autofocus is seldom fooled, exposure is high reliable.

In the 3 weeks since buying I have used it indoors, outdoors in the UK and outdoors in the desert. The results are nearly always flawless.
