I had a different experience as I was using My Nikon F5 D200 and N80 and decided to take out my old X700 Minolta. I touched the shutter button and nothing happened after a couple of seconds I realized no autofocus. After taking a picture I started to take a second and nothing happened oh forgot to wind it. Changed to a different film guess I better set that ISO speed. I have to say that I like both old and new systems. I also have a Bronica ETRSi that is completely manual and enjoy using it also.
