Summary: I see some negative reviews for this Minolta Dimage Z5 camera and wanted to share my experience using it. I have owned this camera for going on 8 years now. I paid over $300 for the new camera from Abes of Maine and thought the price was fair back then. If you visit my Veterans related "FadedFootsteps" website - you will see examples of thousands of photos taken with the Z5 camera - it is the exclusive camera for the website.

2 October 2012
Summary: It is very Nice camera for making crisp clear picture at very short distance, camera keeps excellent focus at 1 cm distance; usage of macro-S and zoom futures gives you image with high magnification and unbelievable clarity !This is my second Minolta Konica Dimage. I also have Z2 camera which I use for my work to make macro pictures of the tiny objects.
Excerpt: The Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 has got a great zoom and a good aperture. But the AF is a little slow in dimm light. Even so, I made great pics with the DiMAGE Z5. Its worth the cash. Go digital!
