Canon PowerShot S2 IS versus Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6

Discussion in 'Minolta' started by Daniel Prince, Apr 1, 2006.

  1. The Canon PowerShot S2 IS costs about $60 more than the Konica
    Minolta DiMAGE Z6. In your opinion, is it worth the difference?

    The review on Steve's DigiCams:

    http://www.steves-digicams.com/2005_reviews/s2is.html

    makes the S2 sound almost perfect but the review on the PC Magazine
    web site:

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1836605,00.asp

    is not nearly as good. I was not able to find a review of the Z6 on
    the PC Magazine web site. Have any other magazines reviewed these
    two cameras?

    Thank you in advance for all replies.

    Yes but the focus is slow. The Panasonic FZ5 and especially the FZ7
    would be a better choice.

  3. Agreed. The Panasonic have a better Leica lens than the Canon and perhaps
    don't cost as much. Aren't Minolta pulling out of the camera business?

    I bought a Panasonic FZ5K 2 days ago at Circuit City online. Regular price
    was 369.99 but checked out at 314.99 plus tax. Picked it up at my local
    store, but the shipping would have been free. That's the lowest price I
    could find on the web at any reputable store or dealer. The camera has been
    great the few days I've owned it.

    Minolta sold their camera designs to Sony.

    And it remains to be seen what Sony will do with them.
