Summary: This is a great camera until the electronic viewfinder (EVF)breaks. The ribbon cable leading to the EVF fractures and the viewfinder goes black. It's a very common fault and costs over $200 to repair. Google "Konica Minolta A2 EVF problem" and you'll get plenty of hits.
Summary: I used it in my last trip in Yucatan for the first time, without any previous trial (but I already owned a DiMAGE 7Hi) and results are exceptional without tripod (not allowed in ruins areas without special permit). Very satisfied.
Summary: I've had this camera since soon after it's release and it continues to delight me. The A2 is not the best for beginners or casual shooters. But, if you are an enthusiast who wants total control of something with a 28-200 zoom that is much more portable than its SLR equivalent, get it!
Summary: This is the best digital camera I've bought so far. (My fourth.) It consistently takes great photos. I just wish it was a true SLR. The viewfinder has a second lcd screen that turns on when the camera is close to your eye so it's better than a range-finder viewer.
Summary: After many months of research on Prosumer dig. Cameras in the $1000-$1200 price range (there are a lot of them) I narrowed down the field to 3 manf./models. I’m not going into the others. After touchy-feely sessions with them, the Minolta A1 just felt right. (NOTE: originally purchased the A1, 5mp.
Summary: The main reasons I bought the Dimage A2 camera was for the manual zoom lens that starts at 28mm, (one of the very few that starts this wide), the tilt adjustable viewfinder, (the only digital camera I know of that has this great feature) and the ability to shoot RAW or RAW + JPEG at the same time,...
