    For sale is a mint set of the Minolta X-9 and a Minolta MD 50mm f1.7 matching lens. Both are in almost perfect condition, with manuals in the boxes and everything. I purchased these for a review I am doing for the Rokkor Files, and now they need to find a good home. (My regular cameras are the Minolta XD and XK series.) Figured I'd offer here first before going to the auction.

    The X-9 was the last full featured manual focus camera body that Minolta made. It has all the regular features of the X-570 such as full information viewfinder and depth of field preview; it is only lacking the TTL flash feature. The body styling is more modern looking than the previous manual focus bodies.

    I figure $35 should take the set, postage will probably be around $8 to $10 depending on where you live. Shipping from zipcode 93003 in Ventura, California.
    Thanks!

    Apparently I can't edit the original post for some reason.

    If anyone is remotely interested in this camera and lens, I just realized if I put it on Ebay for this price, I'll probably walk away with $29 after fees...

    So - any takers at $29 for the set?
    Just PM me,
