I have a box of MD mount lenses in good condition. Unfortunately, I don't have a working camera to use them with. Yesterday, I had to send in my Nikon for some repairs so I'm currently without a good SLR and will be for a month or so if I simply sit and wait. This will not do. I like the feel of the old Minoltas. Beyond that, I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I'd want something with a good meter; I tend to shoot aperture-priority oftentimes. A shutter-priority mode would also be nice. I'm not a fan of plastic. Like most here, I don't trust something that can't withstand a four foot drop. I was originally looking for something to carry around for documentary and candid work. That is still the primary reason I'll be carrying around the thing, but right now I'll be using it for portraits too. I have been (and still am) looking around online. I just figured someone around here might know something I don't; maybe some firsthand experience or something from a friend of a friend. Once again, folks; thank you very, very much.
