A1 will not last as flagship product

i already own a D7 that works GREAT. why would i go and buy an A1?
just because you can afford to keep buying the same camera with a
different name every year doesn't mean you will take better photos.
my HUGE issue with minolta is that they keep delaying the release
of a TRUE DSLR by trying to keep us sidetracked. Yes the A1 is nice
but it is not what people want especially when it costs the same as
other TRUE DSLR cameras on the market.

Hear, here. Minolta is trying to lure us (DSLR hopefuls) into the A1 and also the Elite 5400 Scanner (if you want to go that route). Just like you, I am not biting. However, I do feel that the A1 will not be Minolta's flagship product at the same time next year. It will have to be a true DSLR.

Regards,

José
