I've been using this camera for a couple of months. I love it very much! It's a great camera; you can do almost everything with a knob or a wheel. You don't have to press some button while dialing a wheel to change -for instance- exposure compensation or active AF point; all of them done by using one wheel or one button. For me, Dynax 7 is the most user-friendly 35mm SLR. It has great ergonomics too. It's not so big, which dissapointed me first; because i dreamed Minolta's legendery camera bigger than this, and very comfortable in hand. Most small AF SLRs don't have good ergonomics and because of this i was thinking a great SLR must be a "bigger" body. But after using this camera i see how i was wrong with that thought.
