Sounds like you have picked out some good ones.

After monitoring a Minolta forum I have some reservations about the Minolta A2.

There are many reports of random out-of-focus photos.
There is no known apparent reason at this time.
It is probably something that will be fixed in the future with a firware update but it is a concern.

You can visit one Minolta Forum at:

Select Forums, then Minolta Talk.

Regarding you other two selections -
I'll take one of each please.

I own a Dimage A2. I have had it for about a month now. Yes, maybe a few pictures are out of focus, but any AF system can produce an out of focus picture now and then. Maybe one or two out a hundred are out of focus, but it may not be the AF at all, it could be the user! Over all, I am very please with this camera.

Regard the quality image of mentioned 3 digital cameras, they are very good quality cameras. I'm not sure whether Konica Minolta Dimage A2 has fixed its predecessor's energy consuming problem. But, A2's most features are very professional and well-designed. Nikon D70 is a very good camera, even outperform Canon D10 ( Rebel's senior ) in many aspects if you don't mind the price range. D70 is the best alternative among 3 cameras. However, you need Nikon SLR lense for Nikon D70. For my personal comment, most digial camera, even the top notch EOS 1D, can't fully achieve the image quality comparing to the conventional camera. Even so, the price is too expensive. I'd wait for another 2-3 years until the SLR digital camera possesses above 12-13 mega pixel at the affordable price. But, for now, feel free to try Nikon D70.

The Nikon D70 is a superior choice. I have one and it is great!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
