2 February 2007
  • Summary: The Konica Minolta Dynax 5D makes an ideal D-SLR for those not already locked into another system camera, for those moving across from film, or if you’re simply trading up from a digital compact. There are bound to be some cheap deals around on second hand 5D's.
  • Pros: Good price, good specification and handling, easy to use, large 2.5-inch colour LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity, super image quality.
  • Cons: High contrast images can suffer from lost highlight detail.

  • Summary: The Konica Minolta Dynax 5D is a very good camera. Its feel and finish belie the budget price. The design and controls are intelligently thought out and this results in rich and colourful images. It’s a tough decision between this little beauty and the Nikon D50.
