comment:I would like to kick my ass for selling this one. A beauty in its own, great to handle, sharp, very pleasing colours, wonderful. If I'll have funds again, I'll buy that one again, as it's amazing, what Minoltas Engineers put there together...
No negatives, none at all (if you worry on the price, go for the rule, that you cannot afford if you have to ask for the proce...)
