[font color=\'#000000\']Likewise I have only had the A2 a matter of a few days (exchanged after Jessops UK *very helpfully* exchanged my 3rd defective Canon Pro1 for an A2 after it developed more problems with a severe ingress of fluff inbetween the lens elements). In this time I have have found it very easy and intuitive to get to use - as a long-time Canon user it was the similarity of the user interfaces on my 35mm/D60 that was the main reason I went with the Pro 1 in the first place.
I found the extra A2 camera features *really* useful and not just marketing twaddlebollocks - features such as the the Antishake, the manual zoom and the higher res EVF. Overall, and at this early point, I'm very pleased with the unitended move from canon to minolta - even though it means that I now need to carry more batteries and yet another charger!!!
Only one annoyance, I don't find the dynamic histogram as useful as the 2s review histogram that I could get as an config option on the Pro1. I have been rumaging about in the menus and have not yet found this option - though I can get one after two button presses. Please tell me there is a way of getting this as the standard review screen on the A2?? Any A2 user like to comment?
