Default buy from where? and dimage 7i - how long to live


---sorry for the length, but i want to buy my first real digital camera and need some help? ----

i had planned to buy a minolta dimage 7i on line this week, but now i have some concerns:

after the post about bad companies - where should i buy??

i had looked at


(i hope i got the urls right)

i've used epinions, bizrate, dealtime, etc...


i have concerns about minolta retiring the 7i

does any one know if or when minolta plans to retire the 7i?

is there a better camera?

i want manual focus, shutter, and zoom. i shoot low / existing light and sports... the minolta 7i specs seem to meet what i want and it feels good in my hands... (i own two minolta maxxums)

i know / think i can save by buying on line, but who can i trust and have i chosen the best camera for my needs and dollars?

thanks in advance for the help!

From Doug38.....

I guess I'm glad I haven't bought my D7i yet...that 550 seems like a good alternative, especially for the price. What can the D7i do that that 550 can't?
