    Off-topic, but let's not forget about Minolta/Rokkor as well. They also did their own glass and were significantly ahead of everyone else for quite a while.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Unfortunately, (for me) yes - from FD (full kit including a wonderful 300 f2.8) to EF.

    Photography is my job, and unfortunately, d*****l overtook film as the method of delivery. Made sense to convert completely, however unlike some of my FD kit, the EF system had to be purchased brand new.

    I do miss the FD kit I had, but managed to pick up a great original EOS-1 for my film (no 2nd body just yet), which has kept my 35mm film shooting sated.

    Somebody got a great deal on an A1 and drive, Original F1 and drive, not to mention all the lenses. . . . . . . .but you never know, I might land a nice FD kit from an Op-Shop at some stage too.

    I've had two XD-11 and 2 X-700, whose Electronics have just died and nobody that I know can fix them. So, I'd say; if you choose Minolta; stick to the Mechanicals: SRT-101. SRT-200, SRT-201 and the like.

    Personally, I just use their mechanicals. But have you had the simple stuff checked out on your X series? Capacitors?

    John Titterington in Kansas can fix 'em. He's done CLA's on 2 XD-11s for me (as well as some SRT cameras!!!) - he's the best Minolta Tech out there.
