Wow, you really have been shooting Minolta for a while. Have you always shot Minolta, or ever get into anything else?

I bet that X700 is one hell of a camera.

The size of this Pentax is amazing. It is probably as small as the current Oly 400 series. It is WAY smaller than the 40D, and a bit shorter and narrower than my Minolta AF.

Sorry for the picture quality, my wife has the Sony P&S in Iowa, so I'm stuck with the iPhone.
