Or just buy the A55, it may well offer pretty much the same real world image quality at a lower price with smaller files. A win all round, well for you if not Sony.

Wish Minolta was never sold to Konica, and never sold to Sony.
Instead, I was more than happy if Minolta was sold to Canon Corp.
Then I was a happy bunny and STOP nagging, and START shooting like 'you' all.
As Canon says: "Canon CAN, so you CAN".

That is not fair as Sony have saved Minolta, as did Konica. I wonder if either recouped their investments?

Sony saved Minolta from going under and have re-vitalised the brand. Neither Canon or Nikon would have wanted Minolta as they already have AF lenses and cameras etc it would cost them more money and gained them precious few sales. Also Minolta's market share as a lot smaller than the share Sony have built up.
