5D - French review now online

Pretty short and next to no test images, but might interest someone, I guess. Babelfish seems to do a decent job for those lacking French language skills (like me). For those that can't be bothered, below are the final words:

"CONCLUSION

The numerical reflex camera Konica Minolta Dynax 5D is a true concentrate of technology whose best example is the single system AntiShake which makes it possible to profit from a true stabilization with all the objectives assembled on the case. And it goes, one little to go down in the 1/15 S and to make clear photographs by a show of hands. The 5D is also equipped with a typified ergonomics pro who remains in the line of the km: excellent. All is done by button or rings on the apparatus and the menus are almost optional. What a comfort once the apparatus taken in hand! The aiming is higher than its competitors in term of luminosity and enlarging. The 6 megapixels of the sensor are fully exploited by the apparatus. The range of objective is packed gradually with in particular the addition of three new optics: one 18-70 mm F3.5-5.6 (D) which is sold in kit with the apparatus, one 11-18 mm and the last with great amplitude: 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 (D). Only left us on our hunger its screen, certainly of beautiful size (2.5") but of average resolution and the completion of the case which, without being fragile, does not give a feeling of robustness. Single in its kind, with a naked "street price" of 800 euros, its only and single competitor would be his/her big brother the 7D, always also good. It also has the AntiShake system but offers a completion plus pro and a screen of 2.5"of much better resolution. It costs 200 to 250 euros more and is worth them largely. If the budget is tightened and that you wish a kit, with 890 euros with the objective 18-70 mm, Dynax 5D is a choice which one will not be able to regret so much it offers some for this price there. If you have already Minolta optics, the 7D will be the business of the moment."
