The Beauty and the Beast III

Minolta X-700 vs Minolta Dynax 9 ... guess, which is the beauty and which is the beast.

 

Left: Minolta X-700 with Minolta MD Rokkor 1.4/50mm

The final manual focus SLR series from Minolta.

 

Right: Minolta Dynax 9 with Minolta AF Macro 2.8/50mm

Some say, the Dynax 9 is the best autofocus SLR ever made.

 

The Dynax - in the US it has been named Maxxum, in Asia it has been named Alpha.
