One or two folks are revisiting 35mm and having to buy old cameras, just as I have done. I went Minolta after years using other trusted but now defunct makes. One of the reasons for choosing Minoltas was because of service availability local to me. Ive found SLR Camera Repairs in Bletchley excellent for service. They really know Minoltas and have serviced all mine. Reasonable charges and quick turnaround. Highly recommended.
