Still have all my film Minolta's both manual and auto focus and glass.. Don't use film anymore but can't sell it for what i think it's worth with is almost nothing.. I like my 5D the color is great and noise reduction is about the best I have see at high iso's.. The 5D still beats all my film gear technically way ahead of the game. Going to keep and use it till it dies.. Not going for the newest and greatest photo gear out there not even thinking about it till this one is dust.. If you know what your doing a 5D will run with the best of them.. George

I hear ya George, I love my Manual Minolta Gear. I never bought any auto focus SLR gear. I like the controll i get with manual focus too and use manual lenses on my digital Body too. I know they say the Digital glass is sharper and better but I think its not too noticeable. I for one use film quite a bit. But probably digital more , because its just easier sometimes. Strange thing is that i get more shots that are keepers on film than with digital. I hear so many great things about the 5D that I cant wait till i can afford a nice used 5D, so i can use it with all my Minolta Glass with it.
