Default Please,please help...Canon G3 or Minolta D7i ????

Thanks in advance for all who read and respond to this inquiry.

I need a digi camera for bonding work and to post pics of items for sale on the web. I'm a novice whose experience is limited to 35 mm shooting with Nikon 4004 & 6006. This will be my first digi camera.

Haven't handled the D7i yet. Portability is an issue but not high on the list. Ease of use for quick portrait shots indoors (spelled J-A-I-L) for bonding and indoor pics of items to post for sale tops the list followed by pics of the fam for Grandma.

Battery life, quality pics, easy downloading, portability round out the needs.

Looks like Minolta uses cheaper NiMHi AA vs expensive Lithium Ion for Canon. Better zoom for Minolta, smaller/lighter body and more versatile LCD for Canon. Has anyone lugged around and used both cameras?

Thanks again for reading and offering a novice some useful guidance.
