    Call me late to the party, but I can't stop ogling over this camera, the venerable Konica Minolta Hexar AF.

    0012278-1024x655.

    Oh man that's lovely.
    What's the story behind you and the camera?

    Not sure I like the faux wood, but some of those fake leathers are nice. I think I may get one. What I would really like would be a dark brown leather, but beggars can't be choosers.

    They sure can be dreamers though.

    Those half cases are pretty sweet.

    I got mine back in 1995. For a long time it was my only camera.

    I used to own one about 10 years ago or so, it didn't see enough use, so I've sold it relatively cheap. I've just checked prices on ebay and I've to say, I should have held on to it...

    You aint alone Otse. In the absence of a Leica M6, I'd love a Hexar AF.....nay, I need one! Having said that I am warming to my new toy - the Fuji Klasse S. Though as far as viewfinders go we are talking looking through a toilet roll vs a pin-prick :wink:

    Lili, if you ever need to board your camera for a while, then please do consider an Aussie resort for its retreat. I'm certain it would love the sunny climes....:cloud-9-039:

    Well, those images were taken from Eric Kim's blog where he's selling that very Hexar.
    1950 bones if you're still eager ;)

    I'm a bit of a noob, but what is the difference between No. 2 on his list and No. 8 (other than around $1,000)? That it is some sort of limited edition? Is it the same camera for someone who not a "collector"? Not that's I'd buy one. It's lovely, it's just that I'm not a film kinda guy. But I'm curious.
