    I saw one of those for sale reasently. I was thinking of picking it up but there is a sever lack or availibility of lenses here locally and I was about ten or fifteen bucks short.

    I can't remember exactly, It was under a hundred with my discount, I wanna say ninty or ninty-five. I was originally there to see if he had any lenses there so it did not take too many excuses to pass on. I may still yet pick it up if it's still there as I still want a backup SLR but the Canon F-1 sitting next to it takes priority due to lens compatibility.

    I don't have an Ebay account, I have to beg my sister to let me borrow hers, but I can make it work if I need to.

    I have a book for the 570, but i have the 700...Also, as i was looking, i noticed i had a canon lens. (dont know what size) As far as SLR's i know knowthing. So is this even logical?

    I have never heard of any compatibility in lenses between Canon and Minolta, but i could be wrong. What does the Canon lens say in the front ring.

    I have a Minolta x700 and have used it since 1987. Great camera. You can use nearly any (if not all) of the Minolta manual focus lenses made since the 1960s on this camera. (There are also some off brands that work too but I don't know much about them.) Google Minolta manual focus lens and you should come up with a list.
