Konica Minolta Dimage A2 review

 

Konica Minolta Dimage A2

New standard in EVF quality; fast-shooting design and performance; Anti-Shake image stabilization; manual zoom ring; excellent manual focus system.

Inefficient controls for white balance and ISO; 30-second RAW+JPEG shot-to-shot time; nonstandard hotshoe; lackluster continuous-shooting specs; LCD doesn't swivel.

Generally efficient design, top-tier performance, and features galore make the A2 a top choice for resolution-hungry enthusiasts.
