If you have concerns about photo quality,
you should see for yourself.
Here is a link (part of a review) that has sample photos from the Z3.
They are full size (4 meg) so you examine them carefully.
The Knoica Minolta Z5 is now available - it has 5 megapixels and should show even more detail. Amazon.com shows it priced at $390.
For one of the cnet users, you have suggested buying Minolta Dimage Z3, which I am interested to buy too - based on its features. However, there are not many user opinions or reviews in camera websites.
The 2 reviews that are available said the opposite.
DC Resource says: The image quality is subpar (ususally we would look at the image quality first rather than lng lens etc)
Megapixel.net says: The image quality is best even at the long end of the zoom.
Which is true? Can anyone help me? There are not any/many user opinions or reviews on this camera. Please feel free to comment on any other qualities other than image q, if you know, please.
