I am surprised and disappointed with amazon.com

Summary: I have been a customer for many years, and never has amazon not delivered what they promised This product was advertised as one would recieve all of the product shown in the ad. I recieved the camera,sun sheild,lens cover, one battery, (not two), one 512 card (not four), battery charger, no carrying...
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,...
Summary: First off, let me disclose that I do not own an A2: I have an A1 and decided not to upgrade to the A2 for reasons that follow. Also, I am experienced in the use of both film and digital cameras as well as Photoshop and other digital darkroom tools. Here's my conclusion: buy an A1.
Summary: Having a Konica Minolta DiMage X with which I am very happy, I decided to get this camera when I wanted an 8MP camera with better zoom capability. At first I was unpleasantly surprised with the amount of noise (color specks) showing in the pictures.
Top-quality images and zoom at an affordable price

Excerpt: INTRODUCTION: I have bought two of these cameras - one for myself and one for work (I am a semi-pro photographer at a major public school), so pleased was with my own camera. The A2 was, in about 2003, just about the best of the 'prosumer' digital cameras available and won many awards.
Summary: The A2 is the first digital camera that I purchased. It has lots of features, it's light weight, but it has a very long learning curve. I did take a class and the instructor told me it would take a year to become comfortable with the camera and that was true.
Summary: Overall very pleased with the camera. But there are occasional issues with the camera unable to obtain correct focus. Also , the battery life is poor. At least two are required for a decent days shooting. Picture quality can be very good.
Excerpt: The only thing I would add to the other reviews is that there are so many features that I find if you do not use it for 3/4 months, you can easily forget what all the buttons and knobs are for. However, I concur with what the other say - it is a really great camera.
Pros: Tons of features - even irons shirts ! ! !
Cons: If left unused for a period of time you have to swat up on how things work
Excerpt: There is a tendency for manufacturers to talk a lot of rubbish when it comes to selling cameras. I call it number abuse. They hope by lobbing enough numbers at you they can persuade you that because 'the numbers are higher' its a better camera. Please.
Pros: Antishake, Fine EVF, Manual zoom, manual controls
Excerpt: I found this camera was packed with features which guides you to learn all about photography and what the camera can do. If you shop around, you can pick one up for around £450 which I think is very good value for money considering what the camera has to offer.
Pros: Fast auto - focus, high resolution, easy to use and great for learning about photography
