Below you will find a studio comparison between the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 and the Olympus C-8080, our current benchmark 8MP camera. We have included samples for ISO 50 and 400 (for ISO 800 performance - see next page).

Although there are minor differences in how the two cameras capture the color in our new studio scene (the Olympus C-8080 having slightly less intense reds and slightly more saturated blues), the main difference - albeit not a huge one - is in the capture of fine detail. Whilst the A200 is doing an excellent job, it is obvious that the C-8080 is capturing a little more detail - especially towards the edges of the frame. That said, it is highly unlikely you'd see a significant difference in the final print unless you regularly go over 8x10 inches. Although you can hardly see it, the A200 does have measurably less luminosity noise.
