I have some of the so-called better camera ever made (Nikon, Leica, Contax). A few months ago my father visited some semi-estranged family members in Cleveland, including an old aunt. When she heard from my dad I'm a keen amateur photographer she gave my father to give to me a two-body Minolta kit that was my late great Uncle's. An SR-1 and an X-700. My great uncle used the kit to shoot the LA Olympics years ago for some local papers. Using the kit I'm thrilled by the performance of some of the lenses.
