I have an olympus c-3040...I want to upgrade and I think the minolta a200 or the nikon 8800are my choices. It seems impossible to get a five mp camera that has all of the features I want so I will buy an 8mp camera. What reviewers fail to mention is thatfor many people unless they need to do major cropping/or large printing will opt to shoot in the 4/5mp setting to save room on their card and speed up the camera's write time and general performance. I would love to hear from owners of either of thos two cameras if they have shot in lower MP and seen a marked improvement in pic quality on their monitor and in general performance of the camera?
my camera wish list starts with...
must have: 5mp+, 200mm tel or more,WIRELESS remote, anti shake/Image stabilization
