OK, so I've been wanting to get a mechanical, manual focus camera for a while now. My birthday is not too far away, so I might be able to make this a present for myself. I shoot Canon now, so that means I will have to buy at least a couple new lenses no matter what I go with. So then I was thinking - I have 2 Minolta lenses laying around (probably crap, a 70-210 and a 35-80; they look cheap as hell...cheaper than a kit lens)... While I don't necessarily plan on using those lenses, it did get me thinking. I hadn't really considered Minolta, and I know almost nothing about them. Which bodies should I look for? Any to avoid?
