“Minolta MAXXUM 7000 AF”
by Emile Abbott.
My new/old camera. In 1985 Minolta shocked the world by introducing the Worlds First Body-Integrated Autofocus SLR in a film camera. It required a completely different fully electronic lens mount with no backward compatibility. This camera was totally innovative and unique and was European Camera of the Year in 1985.
This first generation was made from 1985-1987. It caused Canon, Nikon and Olympus to make similar changes and upgrades. For MT
