A pro grade DSLR and built like a tank with lots of buttons,dials, switches and levers that make it very easy to use. This has features that many cameras still don't have today. Minoltas engineers last hurrah as they have thrown everything into it they could think of. Still a great camera to use in the field or in the studio.

I got one of these after going digital with the Sony A700 and to keep my film Dynax7 company and fill my Minolta collection. Surprisingly , even though I now own the A700 and A900, I still some times reach for the 7D, probably because it reminds me of a film camera in handling and produces very nice images (I like the colours too). Its just so simple to use, everything at your finger tips. Image quality is very good for a camera of this vintage, and even produces very usable pictures at ...

I picked up one of the last ones as KM transitioned over to Sony. I got a good discount on it so price was not a factor and have used it for the past 2 years. I also picked up some KM D zoom lenses that were priced nicely from various stores. Previously I shot mostly Nikon SLRs and Sony fixed lens digital cameras. I have shot in the U.S. and overseas and the camera has held up well. The images are good quality because the KM are good quality and in some cases, exceed some of the other brands ...

I have been through three 7D in18 months. I would say none of them manged more than 7000 shots. Its a pity the build quality was not up to the job, as image quality and general use these are superb. I suspect amertue use, in good conditions the camera would last better, but as a Pro you have to work in what ever the conditions are. I also have destryoyed 700si,800si and even the Dynax 9. I was the first in the Uk to break one of these! Sadly i will now be switching from minolta to Nikkon, ...

Very well built! Very fast shooting!! Dials make it easy to use and master! Very god image quality! Shake reduction! i can take some nice night shoots with not to high ISO and no tripod. Almost all my photos are technically perfect. No regrets!!! Problems: Heavy!! Focus not so fast! Noise at 1600 ISO and very long exposures... typicall DSLR, but not enough for me! ;-)

I own my KM Dynax (Maxxum) 7D since August 2005 and after 6.000 shots I'm still very proud of it. I purchased a 7D because I accustomed myself to some less current features as Image stabilization or Time-lapse photography usually displayed in my veteran Canon Powershot S1 IS (still my main camera in today use). I examined carefully the information displayed about DSRL cameras here and there, and concluded that, technically speaking, KM 7D beated all his contenders in every respect except ...

I've had the 7D for almost a year now. I bought it because I've had Minolta film gear since 1966 (SR-7) and have many lenses to go with my 650si and 800si bodies. The 7D felt very familiar and comfortable (although it does require some heft), and I was glad to be able to "stabilize" all my lenses. Initially, however, the images weren't sharp. I sent it back to KM within the first month for a back focus fix. Early this year, I sent it back again. What I've since discovered is that by bumping ...

A truely stunning camera. The manual controls instead of menu driven controls gives you faster, better control of your photos. Had the camera for 6 months and, coming from Canon film SLR, I have never looked back.
