where the G500 "buries" the A80 and S400? I have a EOS 1D and want
a pocketable P&S. I was considering an A80 or S400, but would look
at a Minolta if it, in fact, "buries" those two.

Or is this just Canon bashing or Minolta promoting.

Jim:

I think I probably got the first one, out of any of the posters here (I bought the Japanese Model Konica KD-510z in mid July).

I seriously doubt that it "buries them". However, it does take nice photos -- especially for a subcompact model. I'm quite pleased with mine.

There are two forum posters here that have owned both the Canon S400, and the KD-510z (G500).

Note that the Konica engineers actually developed this camera as the Konica Revio KD-510z (as it is still being marketed in Asia and Europe). In the U.S., after the Konica-Minolta merger, a decision was made to introduce it in the U.S. as the Minolta DiMAGE G500. Other than the logo, the two cameras are identical.

See my response to someone comparing the S400 and the G500 in this thread (it points to the posts with quotes and links from users of both cameras).
