Are you surprised? Probably 90% of the pictures on this site are taken with a (D)SLR of which Canon and Nikon have 90% market share. On top of that only a small group of the thousands of photographers visit the forum... You do the math...

There's quite a few of us who use the Olympus C7*** series cameras. Most of my pictures here were taken with a C750. However, I must admit it only occasionally comes of out the bag now, as I've recently gone Canon
Ad!! How do you find that camera, I have still got my film Minolta 500si and was think of getting that one at the time but it wasn't released then so I got my Canon 10D, which I find brilliant. I still have all my Minolta gear. I would be very interested to know how you find this camera. If I remember correctly it has IS built into the body of the camera.

I have used a Olympus C700 for my first several hundred photos on here and then moved up to a DSLR. I am now taking most of my photos with a Nikon 7900 that fits in my flight bag fairly well as it is pretty awkward to be holding a DSLR and trying to keep people from killing me at the same time.

Well, I'm quite happy with my Dynax 7D! The camera grip feels very good and all the buttons, knobs and wheels are ergonomically in exactly the right places. The camera handles in the same way as my old 7xi, it felt very familiar directly from the start. The biggest advantage and main reason for buying the 7D is that I can use my old AF lenses on it. No need to buy new IS glass, since the anti-shake system is built in the camera body. This system works very well and enables you to take pictures with much lower shutter speeds than you're used to. Another positive point is the big screen on the back.
Minusses are that your old flash will not cooperate with the software of the DSLR (it will only give full flashes) and that it has "only" 6.2 megapixels (I expect that in a year or so Konica Minolta will bring out an 8 mp version).

25 Aviator100: For the Americans among us: If you might wonder what camera we are talking about: in the USA the Dynax 7D is called the Maxxum 7D. Regards, Ad
26 Fergulmcc: Thanks Ad, That was one of the reasons I wanted to get the 7D as I had all my Minolta lenses. I think its a bit late now as I have good Canon Gear an
