At this point I would have to say Maxxum/Dynax 7 is the best film camera. The 9 is a bit too heavy, the 70 is lighter but lacks the data back. I am thinking about getting the 5 because it is a 1/4 pound lighter than the 70 and may be easier to carry when hiking.

What I am looking for is reasonably light f1.4 lenses in the A-mount. The biggest problem I have with these Minolta film cameras is the limited speed of color film, so I need some faster lenses.
