    After watching the prices of the x-700 go up on e-bay I found a camera that meets my needs. I bought a Maxxum 5 date with a zoom lens for 180.00. The x700's I was watching were going for well over 200.00.

    First, how much glass do you have for the Maxxum cameras? If not a lot, then no big deal. If you do have a lot invested there, then check out a Maxxum 7 or Maxxum 9. I've owned several of each - about as good as it gets for modern AF, 35mm shooting - only the Nikon F6 comes close to beating those cameras in my mind.
    If you want a full manual focus type setup (which I have recently switched back to because I love the Rokkor prime lenses on an XD body...)
    Look at an XD-11 (called XD-7 or just plain XD in non-USA markets).
    Check out Antony Hands' great site at www.rokkorfiles.com - look at his camera pages.
    The X-700 and X-570 are plenty good - I've owned multiple copies of each, but the XD-11 is in a different class of solid, metal body and wonderful feel.

    I just picked up an XD-11 from my father-in-law. Very nice camera.
