  • Ian - I really liked and enjoyed looking at that 500mm album - it brought back a lot of happy memories of old film days as I had one of those relatively small AND inexpensive Minolta 500mm ...
  • Sell it and buy a GM-1 .. I still believe it a better camera than the increased size GM-5 and of course with the 20mm on it.. it's a gem AND for example a near shirt-pocket take-anywhere camera. ...
