Dynax 5 and 7 are good camera to use.

You can easily find the review in when you do a search.

And you will definitely have more lens choice compare to pentax.

Agree. Minolta makes excellent film bodies and their lenses are pretty good too. Don't bother about getting Pentax in case getting Pentax mount lenses become a problem. :)

Pop into Minolta showroom in funan and get a feel how the Dynax 9 with 300mm lens attached focuses in low light.....and you will be hooked.:)

Locally, Pentax lenses are kind of hard to buy because nobody is willing to sell them, and the shops that do sell them puts on a unrealistic price tag. But if importing is not a problem, K-mount lenses are plentiful and cheap. You just have to search.

Both the Pentax *ist and the *ist D does NOT have full support for the pre-A series lenses. I suppose you are starting a new system so this should not bother you too much but in case you do end up with a *ist (or the MZ-50/30/60), do note that you cannot use the older manual-focus Pentax lenses.
