Hello All.

After reading all the info from the forums on the Konica Minolta 7D and other forums, it seems as though the 7D has some problems. I purchased a 7D back in November 2004, and have taken say some 1000 shots so far. I have encountered just about every problem that has been mentioned. I am running the latest firmware 1.1, run with the konica minolta np400 battery, have the vertical grip & 512 card.The firmware was supposed to provide faster write times, havent seen this yet.I have had a couple of the over heating messages (beingused on a normal day no extreme weather or odd conditions), I had to remove the battery. I have had the camera lockup afew times. I have also had the camera not reckognise the lense even though attached.

I have always had minoltasince I was doing work experience all those years ago, but am abit disappointed with the 7D.I am seriously considering a change to canon, after recently trying the20D & the1Ds. The 20D at about $500 AUD lower than the 7D, with higher megapixel and in some instances better specs, with better reports might be my option.

try it without the vertical control grip

i understand there were some problems with the earlier models

you may need to exchange it or send it to minolta (the grip)
