I find myself feeling a bit sheepish after my initial posting. Even before I read the response...and after my posting, I found the review on lumenous-landscape. This is the first subjective accounting of actual image quality I have seen. I'll admit that many of my "observations" in my previous posting were unfounded and rather inacurate.

In truth, most of what I said in my post could be considered worthless. I only hope now that we can see more discussion about subjective and objective image quality rather than just talk about the features and pricing and I do, of course, understand that hands-on reviews are very limited.

If all that was said in the lumenous-landscape review is acurate, i will be very happy, indeed, as my loyalty to Minolta can go unchallenged.

It also goes without saying that all you need to do is to buy one EF 'L' lens with IS and the difference will pay for the Minolta body...

-> Every lenses mounted on the D7D will then be "stabilized", even the occasional wide angles that no none has perfected yet with IS for hand-held low-light photography :?

We just have to convince ourself 6Mp is OK, but then again that huge rear LCD is to kill for! :-):-):-)

I have a question/observation that seems relevant to image quality discussions:

I have noticed that grain/noise seems more apparent in image smaples when viewing on a LCD display with DVI connectors than with a SVGA CRT.

Obviously, we are all viewing on different hardware...perhaps this is coloring our opinions. Any ideas about this?

In general CRT will be better for critical image examination (ie more colour depht):

Actually a print is the best judgement, noise is perceived as detail in print, and without it look kind of plasticky.
(and why there's an 'add-noise' function in Photoshop)! :idea:

I thought it was just in case you wanted to bring in the noise, bring in the funk
