I agree, the Minolta XD-11 was one of the best cameras ever made and the manual focus glass from that period is fantanstic and one of the un-sung bargins in the used market, I shot one for almost 20 years in my business and never once had a complaint about it, good camera, good glass and just a plain joy to use, if I remember right the XD-11 was also the basis for one of the Leica series of SLR's
