Minolta cameras?
Jul 31, 2014

This has probably been hashed over in the past, but I'll ask anyway. I know that Minolta went out of business several years ago, but does anyone know why? Has it resurfaced as some new brand or been absorbed by some other company? Quite some time ago I had a Minolta compact (can't remember the model anymore), and I wasn't very happy with it. I would estimate that 20% of the time the autofocus was not good enough; i.e., only about 8 in 10 shots were satisfactorily in focus. I seem to recall that there were several comments from other folks in DPreview that complained about the same thing. I solved the problem by giving mine to my grandson! (That's not very nice eh?)
