Default Dimage A2 on the horizon. Fact or Fiction?

So what's the truth? Someone posted that it is confirmed on the Minolta usa site under software. I looked exactly where the post said to go and saw nothing about the A2. So does anyone know if the A2 is soon to be released or is it another "Nessie"???

I couldn’t get the dpreview pictures a couple of days ago when bradg linked them and they are still giving me a “cannot be found” message. My guess is that Phil wasn’t supposed to post them and cloaked them when someone on the board discovered them. Evidently bradg got to them before they were hidden and they were 8Mp.

Digalstar seems to have an old Apple 64E or Commodore 64 they are using as a server. If I ever get the pictures up I’ll try to give a direct link.

BTW, there's also a of photo of Minolta DSLR. This photo is a FAKE. It's just a photo of the Dynax/Maxxum 7 + some buttons (AS, quick review etc.) copied from the A1. :evil:
