    I don't own an x370, but good luck with the project.

    Used a X700 for years but it didn't survive a fall to a concrete floor at a wedding reception, I replaced it with a X370n, but my daughter started a photography course and kinda took it over. I have about 25 bodies now, 2 of them mioltas, but I still miss that X700.

    Haha, nice! Well, as good as the X-700 was, it isn't built like the SRT 102, XE-7 or even the XD-11. They *may* have survived the fall...doubtful, though. What you really need is a Maxxum 9 if you're into drop tests with cameras!

    Thanks for the story about the X-700; it makes me wonder how many of us "cut our teeth" on those good old manual Minolta SLRS. My first was my Dad's X-700 that he gave me in high school to shoot B&W film for a Year Book class...guess the rest is history for me.

    Thanks, and I'll let you all know when the project is online. Might be a bit, though, because I think the site is due for a major overhaul and fresh look.

    The X700 is rugged enough for me. My first is almost 30 years old with no service calls (knock on wood) and I still use it.

    Good luck with the updates.

    I've never handled anything more recent that an sRT 101, I have however been a huge fan of the Rokkor Files. Here's to everyone helping it stay alive!

    If you ever come up with another piece of equipment just PM me and if I have it I'll be happy to throw in my two cents.

    I am an XE-1 (XE-7 in US) owner so I can't offer any advice on the X370 other than to add my appreciation to you for expanding an already excellent website.

    Great job on the site. I 'cut my teeth' on an X-370. And Minolta is my 35mm workhorse system, when I'm not lugging around the 4x5, which is now in the back seat, screaming for attention.

    Thanks for keeping on keeping on with the Rokkor Files.
    Thank you.
