The Canon EOS300x is very nice (the last film camera introduced by Canon), and with the 40mm pancake it's tiny for a SLR.

There's two Minolta Dynax 5's sitting in my local charity shop which keep calling me, anyone had any experience with these ?

Edit - The A mount on the Minolta's is the same as the one used by Sony, right ? Does anyone use a Minolta AF film body and share lenses with something like a Sony A7 ?
