    Konica Minolta Question

    I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or comments on Konica Minolta or more specifically, their SLR, Maxxum 70.

    i didnt notice that anyone replied to this until now...anyway, my experience with the camera has been okay. its not the best or the worst camera in the world. so far my pictures have turned out pretty decent...anyway, what happened with yours...have you figured out more of the features?

    HI
    I have a FT-1 and a autoreflex TC both are Konica's, I found the instructions on the internet, the FT- 1 is mostly electric and probable more like your camera. takes great pictures and is pretty easy to work one's you read thru the instructions.

    About the same

    I sell camera equipment and my opinion is that it's basicly the same kind of camera as a Nikon N80 or a Canon Rebel T2, just with a better price and a MUCH better viewfinder. Seriously, the photographer is such a huge variable that the camera (at this level) is almost inconsequential. As long as you like how it handles and you can get the lenses you wantr for it, it's the right one for you!

    i think the price is why i decided on the Maxxum 70...being a student i dont have all that much money to buy a really great camera...at first i did think that getting lenses might be a problem because it seems like everywhere is dominated by Cannon and Nikon...but they are readily available so i am not too worried. and i used to have an older model Cannon, which had some lens issues, and like the Minolta more.
