Re: Sony R1 almost got me. A short essay in praise of A2.

I have to agree with the others here ( D.G., Andre, Steve W.). I read about the new cameras with their advanced?? features and start wishing. Then, I take some images with the A2 and wonder " are the new cameras any better, or easier?" Maybe in some ways there are improvements, but to me, they do not justify a newer camera.

By the way, I have a Nikon Coolpix 950 (super macro, super color), a Panasonic Lumix FZ1 ( super 12X lens), and a Canon A520 (carry in my pocket - very nice all-around small camera). But, the A2 still feels and performs like a well designed photographer's camera. Just my opinion from a multi-camera owner (70 years photographic experience). Got my first box camera when I was 10. Just turned 80.
