Stunning pictures, looks good, big zoom, easy to use, great battery life (using 2000Mah NiMh).
Manual focus takes a bit of getting used to. No remote shutter release option.
I got my Minolta Dimage Z2 mid Sept 2004 and have taken hundreds of photos. I take it every where I go and never fail to use it.
The camera is quick to take photos from switch on (unlike my old Kodak). It is as flexible as an SLR without the bulk or complexity. My wife can just pick it up and snap away and I can do a bit more of the fancy stuff. The macro is great and the detail amazes me every time. I, like most people who have one recommend it. Two people I know have bought one after seeing mine.
