Favorite camera?

Probably the Minolta X-700. It is compact, light weight, it takes all of my Minolta glass, and with the MD-1 Motor Drive on it, it "just fits my hand."

Snegron mentioned the Minolta Maxxum 9 or Dynax 9. I have one of those also. The way that it fits my hand is not the same as the Minolta X-700. The shutter release switch seems to be slightly in the wrong place. I need to make a deliberate effort to get my finger to the shutter release. With the VC-9 Vertical Control Grip on the Maxxum 9, it is noticeably heavy. Anyone who has used a recent Digital Wonder Camera will feel right at home with the Maxxum 9.
