OMG! That is so true! AF cameras are dirt cheap now. And these aren't even that old. When compared to buying a older Minolta SRT or XD or XE, or even the X-570/700, those costs more than used AF ones. And not to mention what the XK costs!

www.rokkorfiles.com. You wouldn't want to put your new Minolta AF lenses against these old ones. (well, I hear the defocus lenses and the 135mm round aperture lens is a gem)
