Updated review: Minolta Maxxum 7000

I’ve owned two Minolta Maxxum 7000 bodies and both suffered from the same fatal flaw: a failed aperture-control magnet that made the camera operate only at the mounted lens’s smallest aperture.

It’s a shame, really, because this camera is otherwise a pleasure to use, and the common lenses are quite capable.

I’ve updated my review of this camera; read it here.

    I wish I could warm up to these post X-700 Minoltas.

      I really like the Maxxum 7000. If only I could find one that works.
