    I mean what are minolta playing at and who are they tring to kid! I mean it may have a fancy "anti shake" CCD doohickey but as long as the lens is fixed this camera is going nowhere fast!

    Couldn't agree more. I was waiting for a DSLR to be launched by Minolta as I have several MAF lenses for my Dynax 5 but I got fed up waiting. I've now recently got myself an EOS 10D to play with, money I would have spent on Minolta gear had they offered what I wanted.

    Well, with the Nikon 5000, 5400 and 5700 plus the Canon G3 and G5 they are barking up the wrong tree me thinks.
    The prosumer cameras while good enough in themselves are compromises that were sent in to battle to catch the snappers who would not or could not afford DSLR's.
    Now of course we are into a price battle with DSLR's that will see them at a par with the prosumer models soon enough.
    The next 6 months or so are going to be fascinating.

    Indeed Peter. The new generation of cheaper interchangeable lens DSLR's has left cameras like Minolta's A1 in a limbo land from which they have no hope of recovery until they waken up and smell the roses and start producing a competitively priced interchangeable lens DSLR like the opposition.

    Now that Minolta and Konica have got together, maybe they'll get it together, eh! /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    OH yeah I'm going to join a sliming club that says you too can get into a little black number. I just want to loose weight not go cross dressing. /img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Does this mean that only Trannies use slide film? Maybe that's why they also call it 'Reversal' film, and it's a bit of a 'Drag' to process in comparison to negative film ....!
