    What? No 'What's Your History with Minolta?' ?? :-(

    I started with film based Minolta X-700 because at that time, my mother had a Minolta STR-1 (I think.) so I could borrow a telephoto or wide angle lens if needed.

    When Minolta started Auto Focus cameras, they changed the lens mount. But I heard that Nikon decided to stick with the same F-Mount system when they started their Auto Focus system and I thought they got it right.

    With Nikon, you can make do with a MF lens on AF camera for the time being until you buy an AF lens. With Minolta it can't be done. I vow to stick with my X-700 for as long as it last until I switch to AF.

    But then when the time came that I needed a DSLR, I decided to buy a second hand...

    N-I-K-O-N :woot:

    So what's my history with Nikon?

    Started with D1, then later upgraded to D200.

    Started with a D40 in 2008; also have had a D80 and a D200.

    Current lineup, all purchased second hand with very low mileage:

    D50 x2
    D300
    D300S
    D700

    The latest acquisition being one of the D50s, in silver, which I could not refuse for the princely sum of £33(!) - including kit lens - with around 6k actuations!

    Ha ha! You may mock but, ultimately, it does take great pics of my grandsons and that's all I am interested in... and it's different! :)
