    Milnolta MG 7 or MG-7

    Hello,
    I know that there are two versions of the XG 1 model. The second model is XG-1(n). Here are pictures. I would assume that the XG 7 model was followed by a XG-7 model. However everywhere you look, the XG 7 model is advertised with a XG-7 manual. But you won't find a picture of an XG-7At least I can't. Hmmmpppffff!

    Crazy Yes?

    I'm sorry, I don't see what you're getting at?
    Mamiya 645 Super | Nikon F4/F100 | Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 7/X-700/X-500/XD7/SRT-101 | Pentax Spotmatic | Canonet QL 19 (GII) | and a whole bunch of glass

    Good morning, Focus No. 9;

    Yes, it is quite a cross to bear; the trials and tribulations of being a Minolta collector.

    We can find many of the earlier versions, the XG 7, and the manual clearly does show that there is a Minolta XG-7, but you can never find the camera . . .
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Excuse me while I have a senior moment

    the title and spelling are all wrong. it's XG7 etc.

    Cameras: XG1 and XG-1 (the XG1 was first)
    Manual: XG-1
    ===============
    Camera: XG7
    Manual: XG-7

    I must move on to other efforts that perhaps will be more fruitful.
    such as: will my Konica third party auto ee lens really fit a 4/3rd digital with the proper adapter without loss of infinity?

    Looks like both are excellant cameras, I'm not sure which one is better. In the long run does it matter?
