Konica Minolta is a camera maker, not a camera model. What kind of feedback are you looking for that Steve doesn't cover in his reviews?

I've followed the reviews on Steve'a website. I just wanted some input from others on the A2 vs. Nikon 8800

What frightens me on the 8800 is the noise at iso higher than 50..., but what about the noise of the A2...?

The manual zoom of the A2 is realy a good thing!

But the 8800 goes up to 350... in stead of 200.

So in fact I have the same question... which one of these two or better a DSLR?

The 8080 probably has a better image stablization feature, which is needed when shooting at maximum zoom

It depends on the individual shooting style... :idea:

The 8800 can go longer, but the A2 can go wider; however one can always get an adapter (wide or long) to extend each camera image stablization capabilities.

There are things inherent to the cameras design that their owners will have to live with:
1. EVF viewfinder resolution: one has three times (235,000 vs 922,000 dots) more resolution than the other
2. Image capture speed, especially in RAW: make sure the camera doesn't freeze on you between shots
3. Buzz Buzz electric zoom buttons and focus button/dial vs direct manual rings...
