I bought this camera as a backup because I already own one just like it and have previously purchased several expensive accessories, including wide-angle and tele adapter lenses for the A200. This camera was discontinued by Konica Minolta, and, subsequently, Sony bought the Konica Minolta camera product lines. As a result of these two events, I became worried that if I lost or severely damaged the original camera, I would have to replace not only the camera, but all of the accessories.
This camera is smaller, lighter, and easier to use than any digital SLR priced for the consumer market, takes beautiful pictures, and supports external flashes and studio strobe lighting. The menu is easy to navigate, and all of the commonly-used picture adjustments, such as exposure compensation, exposure modes, and white balance are quickly accessible without going into the menu. The built-in mechanical image stabilization works very well under low-light conditions where camera shake can be a problem.
The negative characteristics of this camera are very few. The manual focus option is not easy to use, and I find it of limited value. In the few instances I have tried to focus at infinity, it has appeared to focus at a nearer distance, and items closer to the camera appeared to be in slightly better focus than those further away. Newer cameras on the market have sensors in the ten megapixel range, but I do not regard this as much of an advantage, particularly where DSLR cameras are concerned. My reasons for this position are that most of the images I print are 4x5 inches, 8x10 inches, 11x14 inches, and 16x20 inches. This camera produces beautiful prints up to 11x14 inches in size, and very good 16x20 prints, which is as big as my printer will handle. A 10 megapixel DSLR printing these sizes of prints loses around 15% of its pixels due to cropping to fit the 4:5 format, and the 150 pixel advantage of a DSLR in the resolution of the short dimension of an image is of minimal value because the A200 camera produces 2448 pixels along its minimum dimension.
Other reviews of this camera have complained about excessive shutter lag between the time the shutter button is pressed, and the time the picture is taken. I have not found this to be a problem with either of the A200s that I own.
For a photographer who wants to take photographs instead of snapshots and doesn't need to carry his/her camera in a shirt pocket, I highly recommend this camera.
There is a lot to love about the A200 and little to complain about!! A full 28-200mm lens, image stabilization, multipositioning of the LCD!!WOW!! This camera is super-Image stabilization is NOT found in many D-SLRs and if you wish to purchase a lens with it built in-start draining your pocketbook or wallet!
The only limitation I find is in the macro mode. This can be over come by purchasing a screw-on lens, which is readily available in the after-market.
Once you try it, you will buy it!
I have been a long time believer in Konica cameras, ever since my first 35mm back in 1978. I have accumulated several of the 35mm; however, when I decided to convert over to the digital age, I was so disappointed to discover that Konica was nolonger in business. So, I went and researched the Konica digital line and decided to keep my eyes pealed on eBay to find me a great Konica DSLR camera. My first purchase was the A200. I so love this camera. It is easy to and the pictures come out GREAT! I even let my niece borrow it and about never got it back because she just loved it. So easy to use. I decided to purchase a second one to give to her for a combination birthday/graduation gift. Her sister made a comment about wishing someone would offer her a camera set because she would like to take pictures also. So why not. I purchased her a Konica Z6, which turned out perfect for her! Both girls were so happy to receive the cameras I was hardly able to contain their's or mine satisfaction in the gifts. You know a camera is really good when people are willing to purchase these cameras long after the business closes up shop and no longer sells them or is no longer in business. Konica or Konica Minolta cameras are, in my opinion, the best camera in the world! I love Konica and have for 32 years.
I love this camera better than my minolta 7d. sence I have gotten this one, I have not used the 7d at all. I am thinking of selling it. I like the 7d to impress my friends, but the dimage a200 has all I want or need. the black and white feature, the 8 mps, the easy handling, the small size etc..... Thx for asking.
Not a new camera and not 14 MP but a great camera with a lot of useful features. Love the size and the close to DSLR ability.
It will get a lot of good use over the next several years.
