Back in the day (i.e. when 35mm SLRs "took off" in the 70s and early 80s) Minoltas were always considered as "consumer grade" while Nikon/Canon were "hobbyist/pro grade". Not to say you couldn't do great work with any, it was just a stigma. In the 4x4 world, Nikon/Canon were solid axle units with 2-speed transfer cases while Minoltas were AWD Ford Escapes.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
