I apologize, I'm not well-versed in the world of 35mm. Photo.net gods, please enlighten me. I have a Minolta Maxxum 7000. Produces nice photos as far as I can tell. I'm thinking of purchasing a manual camera (likely a Nikon F2 based on the general consensus), but I'd like to know what the advantages to having say something like Nikon over my Minolta. I understand that one is manual and another electronic/AF... beyond that though? Is there a big difference in quality? And another question... let's say I get a new lens for my Minolta. Would it fit on a Nikon F2 as well? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm sorry if this has been covered ad nauseum. I searched and didn't seem to find anything.
