I have an A2, and I love it. I was lucky enough to get one just after they had discontinued it for the A200. They left just too many of the nice features of the A2 off when they did the A200 (Like PC Sync, and going down market with the EVF). I've not really used any other Prosumer digicams in anger but I do find the the A2 (Even with the latest firmware) suffers from slow write times . . . . Which is frustrating at times but an alternative view is that it stops me machine gunning for images Smile

My reasons for going with the A2 rather than the s7000, was that all the Minolta accessories I had from My film cameras were compatible. I think that if I hadn't had that incentive then the s7000 / 9500 would have been my choice, although that high resolution EVF is Very Nice

I am not an expert in cameras, I have only used two so far. I have a Fuji s9000 now and am not very impressed with it. All I know is, it's been only a few months since I bought it I am already wishing I bought another camera, maybe nikon D50.

Problem with s9000 is that it produces lot of noise, images are blurry, difficult to forcus and the so-called manual forcus is useless.
Please do more research on the s9000 before buying it.

I have the fuji s5900 and the noise is well controlled for a bridge camera it is brilliant for macro photography as well.

I use it alongside my 350D and I use it mainly for people pics and scenery the colours are nice. It is best to read as many reviews as you can on any cameras that interest you before parting with your cash.
