Weighing in at just under 12 oz with a size of 5x3.4x2.4", the compact Minolta Maxxum 5 could be considered a downsized 35mm SLR, at least when compared to some of the bulkier pro models. But this size and weight belies the features and functions Minolta has packed into the latest of their recent SLR introductions. In some ways the camera evokes memories of the Olympus OM bodies of yore, or in more recent memory the Advanced Photo System SLRs that seem to be fading from view. Those needing the reassurance of a heavy body and use a camera in part to build up their neck and shoulder muscles will find the Maxxum 5 too light for their purposes. But any photographer who likes to travel with their camera and who enjoys the latest in focus and exposure control will welcome the 5 into their camera bag. While this may seem like excessive discussion about the camera's size and weight, Minolta makes the claim that this is the smallest and lightest SLR camera body, so we didn't want it to pass unnoticed.
The Maxxum 5 is both for the photographer who might want to leave the tasks of metering and focus to the camera and for those who like to gain control and exercise their photographic skills.
