CGW,

I'm not looking to build a complete Minolta kit; this camera I got cheap and I just want to have it in instances where using my Nikon F100 would be too much, either due to weight, environmental factors, etc. In those instances, it makes sense to me to keep my lenses as cheap as possible.

It's a stunning camera in excellent condition, but I got it mostly to use when I need a rugged manual focus camera that doesn't care if I have batteries in it, and isn't as computerized as an F100 so there's less to break if it gets humid.
