My first post, I just bought the Minolta 7D/with 28-75mm f/2.8D
at Adorama for $899. This willour first DSLR,we have look at
alot cameras in the past few months. It came down to Minolta
D7and Canon 20D, the main reason we choused the7D was
you can adjust the camera without going thru menus. Come
from a Nikon coolpix 4500 which was menu driven and drove
my wife crazy.

Welcome to the forums.

That's a super deal, especially since the lens alone is selling for almost $400 at some vendors (it's $379 at B&H).

When it was first introduced, the 7D body was selling for $100 more than the EOS-20D and $600 more than the Nikon D70. At current prices, it's a steal.

Congrats!

Here's one on Ebay with 200.00 start bid and a buy it now of 250.00. It is 6 months old so if someone can get for 200 it might be worth it. At 250, I'd rather get a new one for 299.

Good luck, you might get it. I have got to stop buying lenses.... it's getting to be too much. I do need one more to complete my collection. I need something decent but too expensive in a wide angle. I've looked at the 19-35mm Tamron that is sold under nemerous names, some say it is made byTokina and I can get one new for under 100 dollars. I can get the 18-70 kit lens for about 78 new and I'm also looking at the 20-40 Tamron for about 175. There seem to be drawbacks to all and I am having trouble deciding.

BTW..... I just picked up a 200-400mm Tamron F5.6 used. This thing is built like a sawed-off bazooka. If I can the moon tonight, I'll try it out. I'm hoping to get a picture of the flag that the astronauts left there or maybe Neil Armstrong's footprints, but I'm not sure if I will be able to do so if thatwas that on the other side of the moon.

What about the Sigma 10-20 for a REALLY wide angle. No longer interested?

If I could afford that one I might have been interested.

Besides, that would leave a gap between 20 and 28 milimeters and then I would have to by another lens. :lol:
