    Holy moly. This is what I've been waiting for, much too long. Minolta is releasing it's maxxum line of digital camera with the 7D.

    Knowing my luck, probably in the 2-3 grand range. :roll: I haven't been able to find anybody that's spilling the expected price yet. It's still fun to drool over.

    That wouldn't be bad. It have a magnification factor? The info on the site was pretty vague. I've got a sweet wide angle that would be awesome to use on this.

    It's pretty much like the other DSLR's on the market. Still an APS sized sensor. The biggest selling point is that built in antishake which will cost you a ton of money if you plan on buying lenses with that technology.

    It's supposed to hit the market this Friday, November 19th with a $1600 price tag. Why can't I be a lottery winner? :D

    I said that to my wife and she said "you could at least put the effort in to BUY A TICKET!" :lol:
    Great timing: same wife is just in the process of changing from Minolta to Nikon gear, partly because Minolta were showing no signs of releasing a proper DSLR that is compatible with Minolta Dynax/Maxxum-fit lenses, and if she ever goes down the DSLR route she didn't want two lots of incompatible kit :roll:
