Differences between Minolta Hi-Matic 7sii and 9
I am still on the hunt for my first film rangefinder. Last night while prowling eBay I was looking up prices for the Minolta Hi-Matics. I noticed that there is a large price difference between the 7sii and the 9. It seems that the prices for the 7sii has gone up significantly; the prices ranging anyway from $100-175 and above. The Hi-Matic 9, on the other hand, seems to go for around $50-80 and are usually in pretty good condition. Since I am new to photography in general and still haven't gotten my feet wet with film photography, is there really a ~$100 difference between the two for a shooter like myself?
