Re: Minolta Dimage 7i or Minolta Dimage A1- please ?

Personally I would go with the A1. I think they are both use the same sensor size, so I wouldn't expect a big difference in IQ. A big plus for the A1 is that it has built in image stabilization, which greatly expands handheld shooting opportunities in low light.

I did own the A1 for a couple of years and I have a couple of galleries with A1 samples in:

http://www.pbase.com/richard_b/best_2004 (mostly A1 - all the shots are labelled so you can tell which shot were A1.)

Good luck with your choice!
