Re: Earliest A-Mount Body?

The first A mount camera was the Minolta 7000 and came out circa 1985.  It was the first production autofocus 35mm slr.  I still hav my fathers 7000 with crossed X's, the camer I learned photography on.  You can pickup a workin 7000 for about $20.  It was a gret camera.

The Maxxum 7 was the best SLR ever made.  That is what I would get for shooting film if I were you.

Your APS A mount lenses will vignette (have dark corners) on full frame 35mm camera like the ones listed above.
