If the 28mm F/1.8g is your least used lens, why would you buy a 28mm prime P&S?

That's like saying "chocolate ice cream is my least favorite flavor" and then you order chocolate ice cream.

I wouldn't.

IMHO the P7700 is a superior camera to the A in too many respects. And the A still ends up in a small bag. It's just not small enough for me to call it a pocket-cam.

OK, that's fine the p7700 maybe superior but I would think that the A is at least better shooting at 28mm + low light , which is good for museums, dinner parties, etc.

I own a lot of prime lenses and love using them, but I have no desire to suddenly have one crazy-glued to one of my cameras.

well, it's no wonder you didn't like the A, you prefer zooms over primes

I'm glad people like the A. It's inevitable that some shooters would find it "just right." But wanting such a cam to also be good at portrait work is hardly a travesty and violation of the design.

well, I don't think many people will buy a 28mm to do portraits, it's alimited range, but not a limited camera
