I've a number of Minolta film slr's and one Minolta digital...the A2.

Probably a good choice. I shot with a guy who had one and it seemed like a fun camera, plus it deliver pretty good results. I remember someone in Minolta saying they had no interest in DSLRs (before they finally caved) because fixed sensor cameras like the A2 were ideal for digital.

When it comes to film, I'll be torn between the Dynax 7 and Dynax 9; with a slight preference for the 9.

Agreed. I think the 7 is probably the pinnacle of their technical achievement, but the 9 was just perfect. I preferred the 7 when shooting handheld and the 9 with a tripod (or with bigger lenses).

The 600si was a little gem of a camera, too, but kind of the baby brother to the 7 & 9.
