Default which one is the market leader

I just wonder what is the market share, or maybe
which one is the market leader between 7Hi/7i,
and Sony f707/f717.

My dealer here says he sells 8 to 1 for the Sony,
mostly because of the Zeiss lens, and more
"point and shoot".

I've heard thet 70% of market can do no wrong.
Is it true in this case.

BTW is it worthed if I buy both of them ?

Sony is the market leader for digicams for sure regardless of Zeiss or any other digicams manufacturers. They've been in the market longer and they can sell anything under the Sony brand. Is it the right camera for you should be the question. The Sony will definetly give you better results straight out of the box, while the Minolta will give you more control (but you have to work @ it)

Minolta only started to sell digicam since last year when they dropped their APS line of camera and re-focused their effort to digital. (they did sell one APS based digicam RD-3000 something a long time ago and priced quite out of the market).

I wouldn't buy both... save the money for another model in the next few months. Theses cameras are just like PCs...

depends what you want if you want a good camera with beloney memory sticks and proprietary batteries buy the sony. If you want a great camera and the chance to converse with the greatest group of camara gurus... like NHL then buy the minolta and come here often,
