Latest news. Shipment of new stock arrived yesterday from Japan. This morning I get a call saying there is not a spare camera in Minolta and I would be first in the queue when the next shipment arrives, hopefully within the next few days.
I would buy Canon except that the Minolta Anti-Shake mechanism is not only better but is placed in the camera body. Canon have this extra gizmo in their larger lens so you have to buy new each time you buy a lens 😦
