Another excellent lens worth going for is the 50/2.8 Macro, although these are are lot harder to come by.  

Germany seems to be a good source for some rare lenses, one of the 50/2.8 Macros has just gone for EUR171.00.

Thanks for the tip...I shall be on the lookout. BTW a silly doubt...but will the macro still remain a macro on the Dynax 5D because of the 1.5x crop factor?

Oh...I did mention him once, but if you want to know any more about prime lenses I do believe that "dcap" knows a little bit about the subject and has been known to write a couple of words now and then :wink:

ah, I know Mark (can I call you that? its a tad better than calling you digital master ;)) , in fact his review of the 7D (at vividoptic) was one of the first I had read when I wanted to take the digital plunge and his page on the diff's between the 7D and the 5D was also a big help. I know I'm in good hands here ;)

You bet...this reminds me of a story I heard (by Pico Iyer I think), apparently he was traveling through the Amazon jungle and right in the middle of it he found a shop run by a Gujarati gentleman!

But its nice to know that there is a fellow Indian here and who is a Minolta user to boot! As far as I know the Indian camera market is completely dominated by Nikon and Canon (and perhaps Pentax?). Am I right? I remember when I was looking into the online shop of JJ Mehta, a camera shop in Bombay, the only Minolta SLR they used to stock was the Dynax 5!

hello there!

I'm Rekz, im from the Philippines. im an avid fan of minolta camera, maybe because it's the only camera i own.. I got my Dynax 7xi when i was about 18 yrs  old. I became the "Family Photographer" since then... Im not a pro, nor a beginner, i just love taking pictures.

I was so amazed that you have this wonderful and very helpful site. For a guy just like me, looking for an upgrade for my old but reliable xi. I've been visiting lots of sites in the net.. specially ebay and other camera stores.

We still don't have a 7D here in our country.. but surely its my first and only choice. I have no choice but to wait for the best deal... anyway i can wait till december this year.. the camera will be coming from the US.

I will be in this forum as long as this forum is here.. I'll be surely learn lots of expertise and techniques from people like you guys..Thank you for sharing your talent with us.. :D

Welcome to the forums Rekz, nice to see the people join from all over the world, and the Philippines adds another tick in the box I think (apologies if I've missed anyone else from there too).

I'm glad this forum has proved helpful, and I hope it continues to be, that's the reason I started it (even though I haven't got the camera yet) to help out people thinking about getting the camera or people who have one already.
