The R6 or 6.2 is basically a mechanical Minolta and very, very expensive on the used market for what you get.
The R6 and 6.2 don't have much (if anything) to do with Minolta.

Maybe you're thinking about the earlier collaboration, which resulted in the R3 (based on the Minolta XE1/7) and R4 (based on the Minolta XD11)?

The R6/6.2 are small, mechanical SLRs which are much more "M like" in feel than the R8/R9 which are themselves terrific cameras, but a very different design.
