Minolta Maxxum 70 or the A200?

  1. Should I get the Maxxum 5 or Maxxum 70 kit w/28-100mm zoom lens,
    or the digital DiMage A200 - 8.3MP, 7x(28 to 200mm), rotating LCD?

    At this time, I am not planning to buy more than 2 or 3 lenses
    over the next 5 years.(how many hobbyists own more than 3 lenses
    As such, the 200mm on the A200 might be all I need(8.3mp seems
    sufficient as well).

    Ifcourse, the Maxxums are _much_ cheaper, less than $200;
    while the A200 is around $500.

    I guess the savings in film, processing of bad shots, convenience, etc.
    over several years would be more than the difference in price.
