This thread was written not for which camera to buy but to
understand the problem with accessories. Oh well.

My vote, I'm predjudice (I own one), is the A2 period.

Photographers acquire the equipment they need, and they photograph.

"Shoppers" and "investigators" are mall rats who grew old. This is a photographers' forum.

It's regrettable that you spent your money for nothing with the accessories. I haven't seen a lot of telephoto gear discussed here, but the most effective and rewarding macro accessories appear to be the Close-Up Lenses, as offered by Hoya and others. I've tried the Hoya set with +1, +2 and +4, with very encouraging results. I've messed about with reversing a 50mm F/1.4 Nikkor on the A2, and it is extremely finicky.
