From the Manufacturer
The Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D is a high-performance interchangeable-lens digital SLR camera that inherits the revolutionary technology of its predecessor, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D. The camera features a body-integral CCD-shift Anti-Shake Technology that reduces blur caused by camera shake and supports all Maxxum AF lenses including the upcoming line of "DT" Lenses. Its 6.1-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 14-by-19-inch enlargements, and Konica Minolta's original image processing technology CxProcess III renders images in sharp detail. The camera's large, 2.5-inch color LCD monitor provides clear image viewing and data display, and it provides comprehensive image adjustment and control options for creative applications.
Built-in Anti-Shake Performance with All Maxxum System Lenses
The Maxxum 5D inherits the revolutionary technology of the Maxxum 7D--the world's first digital SLR with built-in Anti-Shake Technology and CCD Shift mechanism that is compatible with all Maxxum system lenses, including Konica Minolta's soon to be introduced line of Digital Technology "DT" lenses.
This award winning Anti-shake technology was selected as "European Photo Innovation of the Year 2004--2005" by EISA and provides the equivalent compensation effect with a shutter speed 2 to 3 stops slower.
Konica Minolta's Anti-Shake Technology makes it possible to reduce blur caused by camera shake, even when taking photos in dimly lit or twilight scenes, in natural light with a telephoto lens, as well as macro shots--without relying on a higher ISO setting or the aid of a flash or tripod. Anti-Shake responds quickly to both broad, slow-swaying motion of the camera body and the higher frequency shaking typical of camera shake caused by the photographer's hands.
The Anti-shake Technology can be switched on or off via a dedicated switch on the camera's back, and an Anti-Shake indicator is displayed on the viewfinder to keep the user informed when it's active.
Large CCD and Advanced Image Processing Technology
Integrating Konica Minolta's advanced technologies for photo-imaging excellence, the Maxxum 5D boasts an advanced LSI (image processing engine) and CxProcess III technology designed to provide stunning, natural-looking images.
As Konica Minolta's original image processing technology, CxProcess III optimizes four essential elements:
- Sharpness to take full advantage of the advanced optical technologies incorporated into the lens, presenting rich detail and realism without losing the quality of defocused images,
- Color reproduction to ensure that colors are rendered just as the human eye perceives them such as the subtle hues of natural blue, red, and skin tones,
- Gradation reproduction to render both clearness and deep presentation of gradations for both shadows and highlights, and
- Noise reduction to achieve a natural, impressive presentation of textured images.
Providing a better view for better photos, the Maxxum 5D incorporates a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that also works as a Navigation Display for camera settings. For even greater convenience, the display automatically switches from horizontal to vertical format when shooting in upright "portrait" format and lets users adjust the size of the on-screen text.
18-70mm Lens Included
Included with this kit version of the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D is an 18-80mm lens, a compact 3.8x zoom lens that covers portrait to wide-view shots.
Comprehensive Image Adjustment and Control for Creative Photography
Digital Subject Program Selector
The Digital Subject Program Selector offers photographers five convenient options: portrait, sports, landscape, evening sunset view, and night view. Using the exposure mode dial, users simply select an appropriate option for their chosen scene, and the new Maxxum 5D automatically selects an appropriate exposure control, AF mode, and image-processing program. This function makes it quick and easy for anyone to take beautiful shots without the need for complicated settings.
Digital Effect Control
Adding a step of creative flexibility above the Digital Subject Program Selector, the Digital Effect Control lets users select an option among ten scene types, edit the parameters to their preferences, and then store the settings. Once a scene is selected, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D automatically sets appropriate image processing and image quality parameters. The exposure can then be manually selected so photographers can customize the contrast and sharpness saturation parameters within five steps from the default values to create the exact look they want.
Color Temperature Setting
In addition to AWB (auto white balance), PWB (preset white balance), custom white balance and color temperature settings, the Maxxum 5D offers added creative freedom with CC (Color Compensation) filter effects and Color Temperature fine-tuning in 100K increments. And, the camera's G9 (Green) to M9 (Magenta) range enables precise white balance adjustments for difficult lighting situations.
Offering a new level of convenience and efficiency, this function lets photographers take a shot in differing color temperature settings with two options for their desired color temperature range. Based on the range, the Maxxum 5D records three frames per shutter sequence so users can manually select their favorite frame after the shot.
An inherited feature of the acclaimed Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D, high-key and low-key tone capture extend CCD dynamic range and adjust tone curves to ensure precise reproduction of gradations and suppress noise in low-lighting shots. For example, using high-key mode to take wedding photos under direct sunlight, the fine details of a bride's white flowers, gown, and train can be reproduced accurately. In comparison, using low-key mode, the texture of a black dress in a dark room can be captured in detail without noise interference.
Easy and Intuitive Operation
High-performance, high-speed autofocus (AF)
The Maxxum 5D's high-performance AF system offers exceptional accuracy with a central, cross hair type, 9-point and 8 line AF sensor array that enables high-precision Predictive Focus Control as well as high-speed Subject Tracking for accurately focusing on moving subjects--an indispensable asset in action and sports photography.
Smooth, Responsive Continuous Shooting
The Maxxum 5D lets users capture up to 10 frames at a speed of approximately 3 frames per second (in Large/Fine JPEG mode). The camera's high recording speed enables users to continue shooting smoothly afterwards.
User-friendly dials and controls
The Maxxum 5D offers a simple, user-friendly configuration of dials and controls that even beginner SLR camera users will quickly feel familiar with. Added functions provide users who are moving up from more basic models with intuitive control; for example, the exposure mode dial also operates the five options of the Digital Subject Program Selector, and an independent lever ensures quick and easy white balance control. Electronic menus display adjustable parameters to meet the demands of advanced photographers, and a menu call button simplifies menu navigation. Enhancing ease of use further still, operating procedures that use common keys have been standardized across functions/screens so that users can navigate intuitively without having to refer the instructions.
A bright, clear optical viewfinder displays essential shooting parameters at the bottom of the frame, providing users with all the information they need to make creative adjustments quickly. It also incorporates a spherical acute matte focusing screen for accurate, bright critical focusing assessment. And, to accommodate the camera's smaller design, the Maxxum 5D employs a newly developed forward-bend finder optical system and roof-mirror type of pentaprism.
Durable, Compact Body and High-Quality Texture
The Maxxum 5D enhances camera reliability through its strong build quality. The body is constructed using sturdy glass fiber plastic, making it lighter and smaller than the Maxxum 7D by about 22% in volume, while a functional rubber grip based on new ergonomic design research provides an ideal hand fit.

Regardless which of the two KM dSLRs you go for - the main similarities are the 6.1MP CCD Sensor/AntiShake Assembly and sensor is of APS-C sizing. Since the sensor is APS-C sizing, the lenses used actually have a inherint multiplier factor of 1.5x the lens focal length / zoom-range (Note: Modern Lens denoted with DT are APS-C supported and meet listed length off 5D/7D - prominently Zoom lens). As an example - If you have an Maxxum AF Prime of 18mm focal length, the focal length actually off the 5D/7D is of 18*1.5=18+9=27mm. So you have an ~27mm Prime in your hands.
Update: I am gonna be a proud owner of a 7D alongside my 5D. While the 7D will hold a greater money value and have a more professional/malleability feel, I would be more eager jumping on to the 5D (esp being around it for a few mths longer).
I purchased this preowned build in December and came to me in rather good condition. This is one of the more user friendly layouts you could have encountered against competitors + substantial gripping for big hands (while not being cumbersome). The camera jumps into action on startup (~sec i feels like). The battery life has been ridicuously good - I haven't test all shooting + 0 preview yet, but shooting + some reviewing has gotten me a hair over 400 RAW Shots (very surreal as I'm used to cameras typically needing juice after 200 shots and no preview). It has been very accepting of all Maxxum lenses I mounted on (which I own).
As my Minolta lens collection progressively grows, but surely, for this camera is a BIG TIME Favourite (esp. for SLR experience) and looking to apply on many condition/circumstances.

I wanted to upgrade to a digital slr. I also looked at the canon and nikon. I decided on the Maxxum 5D for several reasons: the price, the awesome Minolta quality that has never let me down, the antishake feature, and the fact that I have a Minolta 35mm SLR. I can use those lenses on the digital SLR.
I've had the maxxum 5D for about 2 months and haven't really had the time to go through all of the instructions and features. I constantly take pictures but am by no means an expert. Despite this, my Minoltas deliver such high quality pictures with superb color and clarity. This is especially obvious when I compare pictures taken by other cameras at the same event - no comparison! A common drawback of digitals is the need for a bright room for nice pics. However, the flash is really powerful so I haven't found it to be a problem yet. So many people give me compliments, even on pictures that were casually shot at the spur of the moment. The shutter speed is so fast that I can really capture the moments.
This camera is really impressive. It attracts a lot of attention even before people see the prints!
Pros: The antishake technology is fantastic - I am a hand-held user, and I have gotten wonderfully crisp photos in situations where flash cannot be used. The write speed to the picture card is also excellent - even with large photos, I don't get a long wait that is typical with many point and shoot digital cameras. The menus allow all the flexibility in settings that I need -the two that I use most are setting the autofocus parameters from a wide range to center of the photo to a spot, and automatic bracketting of the exposure range.
Cons: The extensive menus allow flexibility, but can be difficult for a new user to remember how to navigate to a specific feature. I wish there was a better way to be able to preset 3 or 4 modes that I typically like to shoot in, rather than go through the extensive menu. With some of the preset modes, if you have a busy picture, it is easy for the autofocus to pick the wrong focus area. Finally, I often have to use manual mode in low light, handheld operation - the automatic features tend to prioritize aperture more than speed, and I have blurry pictures that would have been better with less depth of field and a faster shutter speed. This can be overcome by the changing the settings in the menus.
