    Should I buy this cam?

    After seeing how prof. all of your cameras were at LGA ,and how long i have used mineI think its time for an upgrade( a major upgrade). I just want to know what you guys think of the Konica\Minolta DiMage A200

    I don't know - based on the price in the review, if you are going to spend $700 for a digital cam, I think you would be better off getting something like a 300D (Canon Digital Rebel) or spend a little more for a 350D (Rebel XT) or the equivalent Nikon, all of which give you the flexibility of a true SLR. This one looks like a nice camera, but I bet you get frustrated with the inability to upgrade lenses, etc. in short order.

    I went through that last year - I bought a Kodak DX6490 (around $400) since I couldn't really swing a true DSLR, and while it's a nice camera, I missed my old Yashica SLR, and finally made the jump to the 300D last month. I'm selling the Kodak to a friend, and making back some of that money, but the $400 could have gone towards goodies for the Rebel.
