Funny but none of my stable of Nikon bodies ever dropped dead in their tracks like that.
Actually the X700 is a relative to the XG series not the SRT.
The 370 and 570 are only stripped down X700s.
As much as I like Minolta I have to agree about the 700 being a plasticy camera,I recall when it came out,looked at one and knew then that it was over for Minolta.
This was when I shifted my attention to Nikon.
