I've been told (by a professional photographer) that when I finally get my Dynax7 (as it will probably be called this side of the pond) DSLR,it might not give the results I expect using my existing 500mm lens- maybe only like having a 300mm lens.

I can't get my head round that - anyone know if he's talking rubbish?

Actually it's the other way, 800mm (ie 500mm x 1.6) based on the rumours...

Like most affordable dSLRs you're actually gaining at the long, but loosing at the wide. Your 28mm is now just a normal lens because of the crop factor resulting from the smaller non full-frame CCD!

BUt if you have a 50mm f1.7 it is now one heck of a portrait lens.

I own a KM 7D and a Minolta AF 500 f8 Reflex (mirror) lens.

The 500 will be 750! The multiplier is 1.5 NOT 1.6

The camera and ALL my AF lenses work perfectly.
