    A Minolta I never heard of . . .

    Hello:

    Does anyone have a information or knowledge of the Minolta X-700 DL, and how it contrasts
    with the standard X-700?


    Thanks,

    To me, it looks like someone put their initials on a piece of rubber/plastic, and stuck it on the body. Looks like some type of heat mold (leather around the 'DL' doesn't look right) was used in applying or making it. In my humble opinion, it doesn't look like anything genuine from Minolta, and I would be weary of the claim by the seller of improved electronics. I searched everything out there, including photo mags from the era, and there isn't one mention of a DL version. I would ask the seller for a reference to his claim of improved electronics. So basically what I'm saying is he's selling a camera with someone's initials on it for a premium.
