Default G2/G3 v/s Dimage 7i

Am undecided between the G3 and the Dimage 7i. Could someone help please? I would like the zoom and the manual controls but how does the image quality compare?

they are 2 entirely different design criterias being exhibited here.
the canon has opted for a rangefinder type camera with a flip out monitor and 4MP sensor
minolta has chosen to emulate a SLR type design with a 5MP sensor.

if your not going beyond 8x10 i doubt you'll see the difference in images. if you are going higher more is better.

i myself prefer the lens on the minolta (28-200) and the slr type of EVF/TTL viewpoint. i don't use the monitor to frame i use the EVF. i only use the monitor to review.

i just feel that the g3 is too limiting in too many places. but then again that is me and my wants and needs.

i also prefer the manual zoom. no electric motor no buttons.

needless to say i own a 7Hi
