You're going to love it! I just got the 3600 Digital Flash for mine. Awesome camera. I only bought the 75/19 (if I recall) lens. Using my other minolta/compatible lenses for the rest.

I ordered the 3600 through Amazon but soon discovered they were zero balance, couldn't justify the price of the 5600.

Does the flash work well with the old lenses? I'm very pleased with the camera so far! Just need to get a bigger CF card, 512 goes quick

I've forgotten what zero blance is. I just like being able to bounce the flash off the ceiling. I helps to get it off the barrel a bit.

Ya know, I haven't really had the need to try the old lenses yet. By this summer I'll give it a go. I don't know why it wouldn't work well. Can you tell it's been a while since I had a photography class.

I went with an 80x Lexar 1 gig. I tried to get a solid answer as to whether K/M could utilize the write accelleration technology of a high speed card. I think the answer is no, but I got it on ebay for cheaper than I could get a new 512 with no WAT. It was worth a shot.
