    I have decided I am going to stay with the Minoltas. I already have Maxxum 5 and Maxxum 7 and plenty of lenses. I wanted to try the Nikon system and have access to that massive collection of lenses (some rentable here in MN). But I found that I have been shooting Minolta too long. It just means I will have to save and save for the more exotic glass that they offer. And I still have the Mamiya for medium format. Luke

    I think its a wise decision - you make the photo, and the more comfortable you are with a camera, the better the photo will be! Sticking with what you know (unless there is a large and obvious quality difference - not the case here!) is never a bad choice!

    Luke, thats a great decision. I only have a Maxxum 5 now that is reliable & a couple of lenses that I use. So switching to a different system will hopefully not be too difficult, but I have grown accustomed to my Minolta after having it for a couple of years. I'll have to see how the transition goes.

    Hello Valerie,
    I used to own an F4s (I've got an F5 now). The F4 is a brilliant camera and worth the money for its looks! Like so many here, I like the F4s for its knobs and dials. I really only traded it for the F5 because I wanted the upgraded autofocus. This is the only 'negative' point about the F4 (IMO), it has a rudimentary autofocus by todays standards. But, if you don't require AF, then I would say the F4 is in many respects the equal of the F5. They both eat batteries though (especially the F5)! Enjoy your F4s and BTW, welcome to APUG!
