I have six X-700s. I like the bright finder, interchangeable (hard to find) screens, excellent TTL flash system, Motor, Winder, data back. The exposure lock is not comfortable to use but does work. The Minolta lenses, old and new, fast and slow, all look bright through the X-700's finder. I shoot more color print film than anything else with them because I use a 360PX or 280PX indoors at family events.
