need advice on buying the Dimage A1
4 months ago

i have been lucky to find 3 cherry Dimage 7i's, and 2 A200's.

so now the bug has set in to get the A1 and A2.

am i an equipment junkie?.....no. been there done that with the DSLR's i had over the past 10 years. am so much happier now without all that gear. gave it to my son who is constantly cleaning and fiddling....;)

am i a pixel peeper?.no.

i love to go out and shoot, and process RAW files into prints.

having gone from a D7i back in 2002, then jumped right into the DSLR Canon world i have to say, i am totally at home with the Dimage series and love their quality.

i also guess i didn't stick around long enough to know about the CCD issues that i read about.

so with that said, and i apologize for asking this as even though i searched here and didn't find any conclusion.

i have my eye on an A1 that the seller claims to be in mint condition and guarantees it to to be in perfect working order.

is it worth buying the A1?

or is it too risky to find out that money spent was just money spent on borrowed time?

thx

-mike
