Default Nikon 5700 OR Minolta 7Hi ???

Hi guys, Kinda stuck on what camera to buy?

I am currently travelling the globe and i am looking at taking happy snap shots along the way but i would really like to get into some ametuer surf photography and close up action sandboarding shots when i get back to Aust.

What should i buy? Minolta 7Hi or the Nikon 5700

I have read the specs a million times and what one does have that the other doesnt, it makes up for in other ways.

Seems to be an endless circle of questions that lead me off one onto the other then back again!!!

If any one can help me out there can you please email me:

Bought a 7Hi about two months ago and took it to So. America. Was traveling with someone who had bought the Nikon at the same time. At end of the day these were the things that matered to us good or bad between the two.

7Hi - more focal versatility, smaller size (considering it didn't require add on lenses), better battery life & lense shade included

Nikon - better LCD viewer, more accessories

Both took great pictures. IMHO it's a toss up!
