Just hope that the capacitators are not dead for that price. Smile

No offence meant, but why do people snigger about capacitors whenever the name Minolta is mentioned? This is blown out of proportion. Only the XG-M, X-300 & X-700 models were affected and even then only the earliest cameras until the problem was discovered and corrected. And they're easy to source and to replace.

That's a beautiful camera for a collector, but I wouldn't want to use it myself. Far too big and heavy for me and I'm not a fan of motor drives.

Beautiful piece of gear , but .... 3200$ is a lot of money ... a full frame digital Minolta aka Sony alpha 900 .However ,it looks impressive ,and in very good shape.

Beautiful looking camera but just a tad out of my price range. I'm still feeling guilty about spending 35 on my Moskow-5...

I don't like such heavy motorised version. Looks good, that is for sure.
But the version without a motor is out if my reach too Smile
I am still happy with XE-1, good enough for me.

No doubt it is a beauty but at that price, I really don't know. Even the limited edition titanium AF version of the last Minolta Maxxum 9 does not sale that much in today's market.
