    I bought myself a: MINOLTA DYNAX 5 with 28-80mm lense last week.

    I'm very happy with it. It's easy to use (after you read the manual)
    and has a lot of features you can play with.

    For wildlife you might need a different lense though.

    Hi there,
    Just joined in here, sounds like a fun place.
    I'm a beginner too, and am leaning towards the same set up, a Minolta Maxxum 5 with both a 28-80 and 70-300 lens (either Sigma or Tamron, any advice on the brand?).
    Thanks a lot.
    :)
