Right on the money Chris. I have had two x-700's die this way. The cap goes with time, and the fix is not worth the pain (I have tried). I instead have just bought older more mechanical minolta cameras to live with my rokkor series of minolta glass. The last one, an SRT-201 came my way with an off brand lens (that now lies in the bottom of a drawer somewhere) for something like $15 plus shipping of about $20.
