Default Memory Minolta A1

Hi,
why not buy a microdrive?. It's cheaper per MB and it works well.
Now you can find microdrives from Microstor (China) with 2 GB.
Lately I bought one in Germany - the price for the 2 GB-version was about $ 220.
I couldn' find any difference in speed between a CF and the drive. For me it seems to be, speed is limited by the internal memory buffer.

I agree with Helmut, I've just got one of those MicroStor for less than what the 1G Microdrives would have cost (mine are over 2 years old)... and it's faster too!
