    Minolta will finally be joining the DSLR bandwagon with A-S
    built-in to the body. Hah! So there! Not only will the D7 kick
    your <insert Nikon|Canon|Pentax>s ass, but will do it at low
    shutter speed to boot!

    It's interesting that two camera systems that are basically similiar
    with minor differences create so much crankiness. I put it down to
    buyers defending their purchases/buyer's remorse. Cameras are tools.
    I don't salivate over a new table saw, I check out which features I
    require to do what I love and go buy it. The same with cameras.

    Isn't there an existing adaptor for MD to A-mount cameras? That
    should work (with the attending limitations).

    I remember there is an adapter to fit manual lens to the Maxxum
    cameras. I'll have to contact Minolta and find out if it will work
    with the digital camera.

    I can't speak for others but true Americans would never let the facts get in
    the way of an opinion.

    So how come you "can't speak for others" then?...

    Well, according to the charter it's not for flame wars between brands,
    but you couldn't prove that by me.

    My Bronica weighs a ton and is made of solid metal, and it can beat the
    crap out of everyone who disagrees with me, and still carry on working
    without a hiccup.

    Every Bronica I ever met was a Hassy wannabe, and a total pussy. Tin is a
    metal, too. Don't make me reach for my 1600F! Of course, I'll have to wait
    until the local carpenter is finished using it as a hammer.

    It's not going to happen without Repentance.



    I'm talking about a patriotic thing, not a religious thing.

  17. Maybe its possible to be a bit too patriotic--I think it sounds rather odd
    to be saying America bless God. Perhaps the other way around....course all
    nations like to think God is on their side....

    It's Good to be Blessed! On the other hand it is terrorible to be
    cursed; Terrorism, Hurricanes and the list goes on.

    I agree with you.
    Canon and Nikon both make fantastic systems that are worthy of the following
    they enjoy. However, there are some personalities here who seemingly cannot
    differentiate between criticism...and fanaticism. I have criticism for both
    companies, including my own Canon choice, and have similarly praised Nikon
    often and loudly. Some individuals here have a tendency to get their
    feelings hurt too easily when it comes to criticism of trends in companies.
    I am a fan of both. I'd be saddened if EITHER company out-did the other to
    such an extent as to leave one critically failing. That would be bad for

    My hope is that the Big Two keep flailing away at each other for another 100
    years or more. This will ensure greatness in both systems--all along the

    BTW--Systems don't make me cranky in the slightest, but I don't mind jabbing
    a few personalities around here who can't distinguish between personal
    dislike of an individual, and fanaticism for a brand name. Brand names are
    quite neutral in my book.

    OK... I'll make one exception.
    I do indeed dislike the whole business philosophy of Sigma.
    -Nothing against all you out there with Sigma stuff... You're using your
    skills to make the best images you can--just like all of us--and more power
    to you...
    -I just have trouble respecting a brand who clearly sets out to cut as many
    corners as possible to win customers based on low-balling. If they can't
    win customers based on quality, then get out of the way (and yes...I do
    realize there are some very decent Sigma lenses in the sea of crap)...
