I acquired this camera as part of a group of 3 from a retired couple. They were moving to Florida and wanted to unload old stuff before they left and these cameras had been sitting for some time. There's tons of information on the web about the specifics of the camera so I won't re-iterate it all here, but one thing I didn't care for was the electronic shutter. If they on-board computer thought the exposure was too high, it simply wouldn't shoot. That got old really fast and I found myself switching off of Av mode and using manual quite often. Nonetheless, this camera/lenses produced some of my sharpest film pictures yet, so I really have to give props to the Minolta and Vivitar glass I was able to use.
