Veruca, congrats! If my father didn’t shoot Canon (we do nature stuff and rent lenses), I would have bought the Minolta. One cool thing about the Minolta is there are some great used lenses CHEAP. Go to Keh.com and take a look. I still think about getting a 5D anyway just to shoot low light with primes and built-in stabilization.
I forgot to thank you for this link. Insta-bookmark 😀
