Hi Fellow Minoltans,

Can any (1st hand) Dynax 7 owners tell me roughly at what price they bought it at? And if you have the VC-7 handgrip, how much did you buy it for?

I'm bidding for these two beauties over at Ebay after a futile search of the usual suspects (CP, AP, MS) in Singapore, so I need to know if it's overpriced. :)

FYI, Adorama and BHPhoto seem to be the cheapest options for new Dyanx 7s (US$399.95 for Maxxum 7, and US$179.95 for VC-7) on the web. Plus shipping, that's just over S$1k. A bit reluctant to spend that much. :what:

Anyone know where these are still on sale in Singapore?

Or thinking of selling theirs? ;)

This price is much cheaper than you can find in Singapore. Vivien and ileaf bought their Maxxum 7 :D from Adorama recently..

China is selling the upgrade version of 7 at a lower price (I guess) if you're comfortable with.

Just to correct, we bought it fr B & H. Paid abt S$780, inclusive of shipping, insurance + GST. Really cheap, cos CP is selling abt $1200+!

VC-7 is out of stock nationwide currently. According to AP & MS, stock will be coming in end of July. They are selling it for abt $245. :)

Thanx for the advice vivien.

Went snooping around Peninsular last Saturday and here's what I got quoted.

2nd hand: S$880
New (CP) : S$1400 :bigeyes: There's a new set in CP, btw.

Looks like B&H's the way to go. ;)

Btw, is your Maxxum 7 a QD version? (Is there even such a thing as a QD and non-QD Maxxum 7?)

CP was terribly unhelpful concerning the VC-7.
CP: "We don't have it."
Me: "Out of stock?"
CP: "Yes."
Me: "So, erm, when will it be in stock?"
CP: "Dunno."

Good grief, is that blatant anti-Minolta bias or what?

Anyway, looks like vivien's right. No VC-7 to be found anywhere.

CP quoted me $1200+ via their e-quote. I've actually placed an order with AP, will let you know if vc-7 comes in.

just note that if you can get a MO for any items from B&H, the shipping cost will be much cheaper as it'll be shared.
so, are u ready for a MO? :blah:

BTW, I asked viv, coz the CP guy was quick to emphasize that his set was a QD model. Wanted to compare apple to oren.

Maybe that justifies the *ahem* inflated price. :bigeyes:

AP = Alex Photo in this case. Alan Photo is in SLS. ;)

I used this on my 600si only about 5-6 times.

Haven't touched it in years.
