Default Looked at Dimage 7i, have questions

I looked at the camera at Good Guys, not sure who else has it in my area.

The focus seems really slow and fuzzy.

The zoom was really tight.

Do you think this was a bad camera, I love the feel and have always been a Minolta fan.

Were is the best place to buy it?

Thanks,

Michael

Try different digicams so you will have an idea of the D7i performance

well, you can not have the feeling of SLR zoom lens with plastic geared lens.

I was saying that specific camera was a lemon, not the Minolta 7i

Did you adjust the diopter wheel on the EVF to suit? Otherwise it will always be fuzzy... or overide the AF by just turning the Direct Manual Focusing ring? 8)

It was the only one they had, and the guy had no idea on how to use it.

I am hoping to find a good dealer in the area to go see.

Ritz stores also carry the D7i, but the cameras are just hard to find!

the 7(*)s have a tight manual zoom, personally I prefer them tight....

Focusing is fast and accurate on my 7Hi and nothing beats it in this catagory in low light.
