Hi all,

I am new to this forum and I have a question. When will the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 be released and what will be the price? I have been researching digital cameras for about 4 months now and this looks like the one I want. My first digital camera is a Ricoh 5300 and I am pretty happy with it although I get a blurry picture from time to time. It took me a while to get comfortable with it but it has been pretty good to me. I love the look and feel of the Z2 but the Z3 looks like it may be worth the wait.

Thanks to all in advance...

Frank

How's it going guy,

I too was looking at the Z2 - but Z3 is the one as it is basically Z2 but it has image stabilization and the camera body is much more ergonomic and solid.

Ritz camera guy didn't particularly like the Z2 but said Z3 was worth the wait although expect retail to be around $570 or perhaps slightly higher depending on demand.

Ordered it allready.

They say its available after 28.07 (some days before it was the 05.08 )
The price (Germany) is 399 Eurowich is very low (most other Shops are same as Minolta┬┤s Price = 499)

They also sell this cam with a Kit on Ebay.

Still very unclear on release date. The guy at JR's couldn't even tell me--maybe they just want the pre-orders and it really is coming out late September?

Well a google search of Minolta Z3 release dateproduced a bunch of sites in the US with a date of 21 September, 2004

(Example http://www.yalefilmsociety.com/a/B0002J6SFA/Konica-Minolta-Dimage-Z3-4MP-Digital-Camera-with-Anti-Shake-12x-Optical-Zoom.html)

So we give Steve a month for his review and another month to make sure the camera doesn't have any real startup problems you end up with a safe buy date of around the end of November.
