I had a late era 35mm Minolta-Konica Autofocus SLR with a matching short zoom not too long ago that I was toying with (I am a pretty hard-core vintage era mechanical camera guy). I was pretty impressed at it's ability to focus and expose rapidly and accurately, as wells automatically load and advance 35mm film. The camera was made in 2000 something, right before the digital onslaught, but well done. If I'd had time I would used it - on occasion. It had a nice feel to it, the way it handled and so forth, all consistent with the best of Japanese consumer products. I liked it better than later era Nikon AF SLR's I've seen.
