Minolta has a great camera heritage. We are fortunate Pentax hasn't folded. Wish Pentax could do more to assure its continued existence.

This is a terrific image of a very nice winter scene Richard. For some reason I keep looking for Jeremiah Johnson trapping beaver in the background upstream.

A magnificent pristine watercourse where my maternal grandfather used to fish to feed his family.

I still have an extensive array of Minolta cameras and MD lenses from my former argentic era. They sold to Sony so there is a little bit of Minolta in every Sony camera ...
