I have six of these . The X-700 stayed in production for nearly 20 years. Its best feature is the bright viewfinder. You can but the original Minolta 280PX and 360PX flash units for very reasonable prices. The last 35-70mm f/3.5, the MD, is quite good. The manual focus mount lenses do not work with digital cameras except with adapters so they are available at good proces.
