    I agree on the ugliness of the 7000. However, IT IS an iconic camera in the history of cameras, being the first totally integrated AF 35mm SLR. In that sense, it's a collectable, similar to the Canon AE-1, which is also rather lacking in the looks/feel department, but the most successful SLR of all time as measured by units sold.

    A friend gave me a Maxxum camera with a lens, but I am greatly invested in Nikon so I don't even pull out the Minolta.

    If someone wants it, just pay shipping and it's yours.

    I'd be interested depending on model. If it isn't something I can use; I'll pass for somebody who needs it. I'll send a PM.

    His Maxxum is a 500si w/35-80. I already have almost the same outfit so will let somebody who has more use for it get this one.

    They really are amazing and fun cameras. My Maxxum 5 with 50/1.7 has become my main bicycle camera.
